EXSLT - set:trailing - Implementer Page

Version: 1
Status: stable
User Page: index.html
XML Definition: set.trailing.xml
Function Package: set.trailing.zip

Function Syntax

node-set set:trailing(node-set, node-set)

Template Syntax

<xsl:call-template name="set:trailing">
   <xsl:with-param name="nodes" select="node-set" />
   <xsl:with-param name="node" select="node-set" />

The set:trailing function returns the nodes in the node set passed as the first argument that follow, in document order, the first node in the node set passed as the second argument. If the first node in the second node set is not contained in the first node set, then an empty node set is returned. If the second node set is empty, then the first node set is returned.

The set:trailing template applies templates to these nodes in set:trailing mode. By default, the nodes are copied by this template, so that a result tree fragment consisting of the nodes is returned.

An implementation of this extension function in the EXSLT set namespace must conform to the behaviour described in this document.


Built-in support for set:trailing is available in the following XSLT processors:
