I've just upgraded from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010. I developed a lot of stuff in XSL in 2007 - and while a lot of it works, there are some bugs I've found in my code that I don't know what to do with.

I'm using a Data View Web Part to display a SharePoint 2010 list with an associate Content Type. I'm able to see all the all the data from the content type's columns, and I'm even able to see the "@Created" internal field. I'm not able to view the internal "@Author" field.

My current hypothesis is the DVWP is not able to view the field because it's not part of the Content Type.

Has anyone seen this? Help is much appreciated!

Look at your datasource in Sharepoint Designer. You need to use either, @Author.title, or @Author.span.
