Use xf:select and xf:copy, not select1 and xf:value.

Thanks Roland, The value copied over in the specification is text so I'm
a bit confused. I want to insert element fragments into the saved xml
file.

	Greetings Michael, I'm afraid not, you will need to use
<itemset> to do what you want. There is an example [1] in the spec which
shows how to do what you want.

	Hi, 

	I'm very new to Xforms and am trying to use it to create xml
data files. 

	I have no problems when the values I want to submit are plain
text. 

	For example: 

	<xf:select1> 
	       <xf:label>Is today Friday?<br/> 
	       </xf:label> 
	       <hr/> 
	       <xf:item> 
	               <xf:label>yes</xf:label> 
	               <xf:value>yes</xf:value> 
	       </xf:item> 
	       <xf:item> 
	               <xf:label>no</xf:label> 
	               <xf:value>no</xf:value> 
	       </xf:item> 
	</xf:select1> 

	The issue I would like some advice on is whether it is possible
to have an element as a value rather than text. 

	For example: 

	<xf:select1> 
	       <xf:label>Is today Friday?<br/> 
	       </xf:label> 
	       <hr/> 
	       <xf:item> 
	               <xf:label>yes</xf:label> 
	               <xf:value><yes/></xf:value> 
	       </xf:item> 
	       <xf:item> 
	               <xf:label>no</xf:label> 
	               <xf:value><no/></xf:value> 
	       </xf:item> 
	</xf:select1> 

	Regards, 

	Michael Will
