Definition and Usage

The <xsl:value-of> element extracts the value of a selected node.

The <xsl:value-of> element can be used to select the value of an XML element and add it to the output.


Syntax

<xsl:value-of select="expression" disable-output-escaping="yes|no" />

Attributes

Attribute Value Description
select expression Required. An XPath expression that specifies which node/attribute to extract the value from. It works like navigating a file system where a forward slash (/) selects subdirectories.
disable-output-escaping yes
no
Optional. "yes" indicates that special characters (like "<") should be output as is. "no" indicates that special characters (like "<") should be output as "&lt;". Default is "no"


Examples

Example 1

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">

<xsl:template match="/">
  <html>
  <body>
    <h1>Music Collection:</h1>
    <table border="1">
      <tr bgcolor="#9acd32">
        <th>Title</th>
        <th>Artist</th>
      </tr>
      <tr>
        <td><xsl:value-of select="catalog/cd/title" /></td>
        <td><xsl:value-of select="catalog/cd/artist" /></td>
      </tr>
    </table>
  </body>
  </html>
