XSLT <xsl:value-of> Element


XSLT Element Reference Complete XSLT Element Reference


Definition and Usage

The <xsl:value-of> element 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.

Note: The value of the required select attribute contains an XPath expression. It works like navigating a file system where a forward slash (/) selects subdirectories.


Syntax

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

Attributes

disable-output-escaping yes

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"
