Hi there

I know I should probably do a proper course on xml and xslt but I just need
a really quick solution for this small job - then I can probe further.

I have an xml file with nested tasks:

  <description>Learn to walk</description>
  <notes>Gaining strength and balance</notes>

I want to output xhtml so that each task has a container with a class
equivalent to its 'status', eg. <div

This is a snippet of my xsl file:

<xsl:for-each select="plan/task">
<span><xsl:value-of select="status" /></span>
<span class='title'><xsl:value-of select="title" /></span>
<span class='description'><xsl:value-of select="description" /></span>
<span class='notes'><xsl:value-of select="notes" /></span>

I don't want a 'status' span, I want it to be the class of the div.

Does this make sense and is there a relatively simple solution?
