xsl landscape printing

Hi I am tryign to use this to print my table in landscape by default.
i am new at the xsl and need some assistance. when i try to use the
following i get the error:

Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error
and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Variable or parameter 'printingtype' cannot have both a select
attribute and non-empty content.

code:

<xsl:param name="printingt ype" select="'landsc ape'">
<xsl:variable name="pageheigh t">
<xsl:choose>
<xsl:when
test="$printing type='landscape '">21</xsl:when>
<xsl:otherwise> 29.7</xsl:otherwise>
</xsl:choose>
</xsl:variable>
<xsl:variable name="pagewidth ">
<xsl:choose>
<xsl:when
test="$printing type='landscape '">29.7</xsl:when>
<xsl:otherwise> 21</xsl:otherwise>
</xsl:choose>
</xsl:variable>

Any guidance would be appreciated.

thanks
shen

The message means exactly what it says. You can set the value of the
param *EITHER* by using an XPath expression in the select attribute,
*OR* by providing a contained XSLT tree that computes the value, and
since you have not terminated the xsl:param before you start defining
the variables you are trying to do both.

What are you actually trying to do?

Variable or parameter 'printingtype' cannot have both a
select attribute and non-empty content.
The error message is about as clear as it could possibly
get. xsl:param element cannot have both non-empty content
and a select attribute. Either your transformation is not
well-formed XML (in that case use / to indicate empty
content for xsl:param element) or you're trying to do
something that cannot be done.

Since you seem to expect $printingtype to be already
defined in those xsl:variable elements, I'd bet you simply
forgot that slash in xsl:param.

Well... I have a xsl file that i want to print, but i want my client
to be able to print it in landscape mode and not have to go set it
himself. Because this table that is being printed does not fit when
prinitng in portrait...

So i should put the </xsl:paramsomewh ere else?
where do i terminate it? i thought i just end at the end of the xsl
file (??)

sorry about my ignorance..i'm just tryign to get this to work with a
fiel someone else made..and yet i hardly even know how xsl works...
is printing i landscape even doable??

thanks

It looks like you intended

<xsl:param name="printingt ype" select="'landsc ape'"/>

Note the /to terminate the element. Or, equivalently,

<xsl:param name="printingt ype" select="'landsc ape'"></xsl:param>

XSLT/XML elements, unlike HTML/SGML elements, *MUST* be properly terminated.

Ok perfect, so i did this and no longer get the error...but i still
can not get my page to print in landscape mode...
how woudl i do this?

i've tried everythign i know how. I even tried rotating the page 90
degrees...but then only my title rotates and the table stays the way
it is. Just to give you a better idea: the database used is access,
and an xml file and then using the xsl file we can view teh content in
the db. which is what i am tryign to print in landscape..

thanks..
