Thank you all for your help and input. The different solutions for the same
problem have given me a good understanding of how deep my understanding of
Michael, thanks for your view and solutions. I will try both notations in
the not too distant future since they are a little beyond my current XPath
capabilities. This is something I will read up upon.

You can test if the next sibling element is a T element using
However, I wouldn't solve this problem in that way. I would have logic
<td><xsl:value-of select="(T, '*')"/></td>
In 1.0 you would have to expand this out using xsl:choose.

Subject: [xsl] Check if next tag is ...
The XML file I work with contains records that most of the
time have three unique nodes. However, it is part of the
design that one of these nodes, T in the example, is
optional. Here is an example of a file.
The end result I'm aiming for is a rather simpel HTML table:
P T S
C AAA BBB CCC
C DDD EEE FFF
C GGG * HHH
C .... ... ....
The problem I'm having is that I'm trying to test when
processing the P node if the next node is T. If the next node
isn't T or if the T node doesn't exist then use the value *
instead. Now I've experiemented with following-sibling,
node() and value but haven't been successful.
Can anyone point me in the direction of a good tutorial or
help me out.
My current list of references during development are:
 - http://www.zvon.org/xxl/XSLTreference/Output/index.html,
 - http://www.dpawson.co.uk/xsl/sect2/sect21.html=20
But these haven't been able to help me do what I want to do.
Any help is welcomed.
