XSL Pattern Matching - 15 Nov 2001

Description: This is a simple searching application written in JScript that uses XSL pattern-matching to retrieve requested nodes and XSL stylesheets to display those nodes. In this case, the user can search a bookstore's inventory by title or author.

More Details

The select boxes in the demo above are generated dynamically from the data within the XML document. Expand the XML containing the list of books and the choices will expand, as well. More information on the XSL pattern-matching syntax can be found in the XML reference documentation. More information on the XML object model and, specifically, the selectNodes method can be found there, as well.
