That's natural.

 Since I cannot figure out how to write for the
current node PERSNAME for an instance of two PERSNAME elements,

<xsl:value-of select="./PESNAME[2]"/>
<xsl:value-of select="./@ENCODINGANALOG[2]"/>

That's what templates are for!

then I decided to write two for-each statements, one inside another,
to take care of it. It is clumsy and awkward and very very
frustrating, but it works....

Ugh! you'll find the "solution" scales poorly and is very brittle.

Is there any reason *not* to use templates?
