Description Dawn Roth 2002-09-13 15:06:12 UTC
The mode attribute for the xtags:template and xtags:applyTemplates elements does
not work at all.  It causes the template that has the mode to never match its
elements.  If you remove the modes, then the same templates match as expected.

The following snippet does not work:

<xtags:stylesheet>

<xtags:template match="/">
<p>matched root</p>
<xtags:applyTemplates mode="foo" />
</xtags:template>

<xtags:template mode="foo" match="item">
<p>output for mode foo</p>
</xtags:template>

</xtags:stylesheet>

If you remove the modes, it works.  This is important functionality, because
without this, you cannot translate an element two ways depending on your needs.
(Like TOC vs. plain as shown in most XSL examples.)

This mail from the mailing lists also describes the problem:

Thanks very much,

I have some bugfixes for the xtags-taglib. Now the attribute 'mode' works fine. 
Because of no CVS, I attach the complete files and not only patches.

Resolving. Taglib has been retired.
