it worked! Now I just have to figure out why... :-)

OK, the docs I've got say that '//issue' will match all <issue> elements
anywhere in the document. As opposed to 'issue' which only matches children
in the current context. OK, that's clear. ah ha! And the current context is the
<title> tag, because I've now got

    <xsl:template match="title">
            <xsl:value-of select="."/> #<xsl:value-of select="//issue/@num"/> 
For <xsl:value-of select="//issue/@date" />
