I have an XML which has a Data like <data>12-24</data> .When i bring this data in Excel using XSL and JSP ,the Excel shows it as 24 Dec.
I am using the following in xsl
<td style='color:black; font-family:Arial; font-size:8pt;' height="17">
<xsl:value-of select="."/>
</td>
I tried <data>'12-24</data> but then in Excel it comes like '12-24 and when i select the cell and press enter it gets converted to 12-24.
Any suggessions?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
