Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Back-Referencing A Matched Element

You can use the dot operator (.) in XSL transformation stylesheets to refer to, effectively, "whatever element was just identified."

Let's say you had this template in a stylesheet:

<xsl:template match="dialog/title"> 
Say you also wanted such elements to be converted to dialogTitle elements. You could do it by fleshing out your template like this:
<xsl:template match="dialog/title">
<xsl:value-of select=".">

Note that the dot has to be in quotes. Here it refers to the title element inside the dialog element.
