XSL - If Else condition Choose When Otherwise

In XSL, there is no If - Else construct. Only If is present.

If your requirement is stricly If - Else, instead use the Choose When Otherwise construct as below:

 <xsl:when test="$a > $b">
  <h2> A is greater than B </h2>
  <h2> B is greater than A </h2>

In the above example, a ($a) and b ($b), are variables.

XSL - Check if item is contained in a list

Use the below sample if you want to check if an item is contained in a list.
This sample is using XSL and XPATH with XML input.
In the below sample:
<!-- .xsl file -->

<!-- List of items to be checked against -->
<xsl:variable name="students" select="'Jon Tom Ana Ben'" />

<!-- Item to be checked if contained in list -->
<xsl:variable name="classTopper" select="'Ana'" />

<!-- Alternately the item can be dynamically taken from the xml input file as below -->
<!-- <xsl:variable name="classTopper" select="/root/@topper" /> -->

<!-- Check if class topper is in the students list -->
<xsl:if test="
    concat(' ', $students, ' '),
    concat(' ', $classTopper, ' ')
  <xsl:value-of select="concat('Student ', $classTopper, ' is in the students list.')" />

Note: Here space is used as separator in the list. You can replace with something else like a pipe "|". In that case, the concat in contains() will be like:
concat ('|', $list, '|') ...

JavaScript - Replace Comma with New Line

Use JavaScript String functions "split" and "join":
var formattedString = yourString.split(",").join("\n")
If you'd like the newlines to be HTML line breaks replace "\n" with "<br />"

Alternate method using "replace" function.
yourString.replace(/,/g, '\n');
