    Quick XPath Explanation

    Could someone explain what this statement would be testing please?

    <xsl:if test="count($featuredArticles[@id=current()/@id])&lt;=0">

    Hi Steve,

    It's a somewhat clumsy way of checking within a for-each loop, if the current node in the loop is present in the $featuredArticles selection. Probably because the original code was written (or conceived) in another language.

    This should do the same:

    <xsl:if test="$featuredArticles[@id=current()/@id]">

    Or even as simple as:

    <xsl:if test="@id = $featuredArticles/@id">
