Description

Using saxon-js and given this input:

<foo:root xmlns:foo='http://www.example.com'>
      <foo:bar>Hello world</foo:bar>
</foo:root>

And this stylesheet:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="3.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xpath-default-namespace="http://www.example.com">

  <xsl:output method="json"/>

  <xsl:template match="/">
    <xsl:map-entry key="'greeting'" select="string(//bar)"/>
  </xsl:template>

</xsl:stylesheet>

I get this output:

{"greeting": "Hello world"}

However, if I attempt to use the same Xpath to select the key instead of the value, as such:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="3.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xpath-default-namespace="http://www.example.com">

  <xsl:output method="json"/>

  <xsl:template match="/">
    <xsl:map-entry key="string(//bar)" select="'greeting'"/>
  </xsl:template>

</xsl:stylesheet>

I get an empty string for the key:

{"": "greeting"}

Attempting this same transformation with the saxon processor bundled with oXygen (v 9.9.1.7 at time of writing) produces the output I expect, however:

{"Hello world":"greeting"}
