Default Move element

Hi guys,

I have a doubt to move the element into perticular position, mentioned the example as below,

<date> element should be move after the element <host>, Is it possible to do in xslt 2.0??

Input Sample:

Code:
<reference id="ref011">
<host>
<book>
<title>
<maintitle>College bound seniors</maintitle>
</title>
<date>1980</date>
<publisher>
<location>Princeton (NJ)</location>: <name>College Board Publications</name>; </publisher>
</book>
</host>
</reference>
Output Sample:

Code:
<reference id="ref011">
<host>
<book>
<title>
<maintitle>College bound seniors</maintitle>
</title>
<publisher>
<location>Princeton (NJ)</location>: <name>College Board Publications</name>; </publisher>
</book>
</host><date>1980</date>
</reference>
Attempt XSLT 2.0:

Code:
<xsl:template match="//host/book/date">
<xsl:if test="./following-sibling::publisher">
<xsl:copy-of select="//host/date"/>
</xsl:if>
</xsl:template>
Please help me anybodies....

Thumbs up

Try this:
Code:
<xsl:template match="*">
<xsl:copy>
<xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
<xsl:apply-templates></xsl:apply-templates>
</xsl:copy>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="host">
<xsl:copy>
<xsl:apply-templates select="book"></xsl:apply-templates>
<xsl:copy-of select="//date"></xsl:copy-of>
</xsl:copy>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="date"></xsl:template>

Rummy's code works only if the data doesn't repeat: the "//date" should be ".//date" or "host/book/date".

The key thing is that you're doing two separate operations: (a) dropping date from the content of book, (b) adding date to the content of reference. So you can use an identity template modified for those two elements:

Code:
<xsl:template match="book">
  <xsl:copy>
     <xsl:copy-of select="* except date"/>
  </xsl:copy>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="reference">
  <xsl:copy>
    <xsl:apply-templates/>
    <xsl:copy-of select="host/book/date"/>
  </xsl:copy>
</xsl:template>
