I want to use XSLT to format xml, follows with my xml file and xsl file
XSL file
<xsl:template match="/">
<xsl:for-each select="root/user">
<td><a href=" put code here "><xsl:value-of select="Title"/></a></td>.....Line (4)
<td><xsl:value-of select="name"/></td>
In line 4 of xsl file , I want to put value of <xsl:value-of select="user_id"/> into html link, just href="<xsl:value-of select="user_id"/>"
I tried several methods to do it, anyone didn't work successfully.
How to put the value into href attribute within tag a???
Please help ....
Thanks in advance.

Try using <xsl:attribute>. An example,
<xsl:attribute name="href"><xsl:value-of select="user_id"/></xsl:attribute>The title part</a>
Hope this helps!
