in reply to Possible XML Question

As you have discovered, the nodes are not in the document, to distinguish between NULL and empty string.

As for XSLT, you could always do:

<xsl:template match="row"> <xsl:value-of select="column1"/>,<xsl:value-of select="column2"/>,<!- +- etc etc --> </xsl:template>

In this way, non-existant elements will get stringified into the empty string.

Most of my code is tested...

Perl is strongly typed, it just has very few types (Dan)
