Thanks everyone for the information!

:>I don't remember whether HTML is officially uppercase or lowercase,

I did get it working, and guess what it wasn't the parser.
Nope, it was the code writer's fault.  Yes and thanks to 
Scott Boag I realized what I was missing which was the 
stupid output.  Although I would like to blame the parser,
it was the stupidity of the HUMAN FACTOR  (ME).  That's what
happens when you cut an paste (lazy stupid Developer, that being
me of course).

However, one interesting note for you folks out there.  Is there 
a reason why XALAN won't recognize the following:


<c:classif TS="T O P S E C R E T"/>
<c:classif S="S E C R E T"/>
<c:classif C="C L A S S I F I E D"/>

Code omitted for readability....

<xsl:template match="/">
	<xsl:apply-templates />

xsl:template match="dppo:document">

	<!-- The CODE between the comments does not display when parsed
           through XALAN -->	

			<xsl:variable name="c"
			<xsl:value-of select="document(' ')/*/c:classif/@*
						[name(.)=$c or name()='X']

	<!-- Granted it could be ME being stupid again and forgetting 
		something, but I didn't think I forgot anything this time
		<SPAN style="
		width: 100%">
	<xsl:apply-templates />

Remaining Code omitted...


Any ideas will help, even if you don't think they could.

Thanks again to everyone who responded.
