Using elements inside XSLT file

I have a XML file, which contains itemid-elements, e.g.:
<itemid>3</itemid>
<itemid>12</itemid>
Now I want to convert these IDs to the corresponding name via XSLT. I
thought I could do it this way (XSLT):
<xsl:apply-templates select="itemid" />
<xsl:template match="itemid">
<xsl:value-of select="itemnam es[itemid]" />
</xsl:template>
And I'd like to have this itemnames-element also inside the XSLT file
(rather than another XML file):
<itemnames>
<item>chair</item>
<item>table</item>
<item>cupboar d</item>
...
</itemnames>

But it doesn't work this way because the XSLT processor searches the XML
file for the itemnames-element but it is inside the XSLT file. Is it
possible to point to the itemnames-element inside of the XSLT file? How?

Thank you in advance!

The document() function, when called with no arguments, refers to the
stylesheet document.

Hi, I'm new to XSLT and I'm having a hard time figuring out whether XSLT will do what I need it to do. I have a XML file with a whole bunch of <message> elements. These <message> elements have <!]> in them. I would like to use XSLT to remove the <message> elements whose CDATA (the "...") matches a particular regular expression.

Not much expertise on XSLT and trying to understand it's uses when creating apps in VS.NET?

I have a scheduled job that uses different XSL templates to transform XML and save it to disk. I am having problems with the code below.

Hi I'm attempting additions/changes to a Java program that (among other things) uses XSLT to transform a large (96 Mb) XML file. It runs fine on small XML files but generates OutOfMemory exceptions with large XML files. I tried a simple punt of -Xmx512MB but that didn't work. In the future, the input XML file may become considerably bigger than 96 MB, so even if it did work, it probably would be putting off the inevitable to some later...

Hello, Just wondering if anyone could shed any light on this, it's probably me just being silly... I have a dataset that I've used to create an XmlDataDocument, in order to apply XSL. The XSL reformats the XML to another format (still XML, not HTML). This works fine, but whatever I do, I can't get the finally output section to have CDATA elements. I've added a cdata-section-elements tag into the xsl file, but it doesn't seem to have...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...
