Default XSLT to get hyperlinks in output

Hi All,

I have an XSLT, which is rendering/parse XML to generate html page.
Generated html page have href links and I am using the below lines to get those links.

<a href="sample.xml"><xsl:value-of select="val"/></a>

Is there any other way to specify URL in generated html page.
Xlink is not working as generated page (i.e. output of XSLT) is html page and Xlink is not getting in output.

Appreciate your quick response.

Either use the xsl:attribute element, or do it like this:

<a href="{@href}">...</a>

You haven't explained why the output you are getting (<a href=...">) is unsuitable. Is it because you don't want to link to sample.xml, but to some file sample.html obtained by transforming sample.xml? In that case it rather depends on how you are organizing the transformation - in advance at publication time, on demand server-side, or on-demand client side.

You'll find examples of how to handle all three in the Genealogy case study chapter of my book.
