<xsl:number> is probably a false friend in this situation. I have a notion of what you need to do, but it will be much easier to help if you post an example (as opposed to the description you gave) of what the output you are now getting looks like, and a second example of the output you would like to get. -- Charles Knell cknell@xxxxxxxxxx - email -----Original Message----- From: ms <mina_hurray@xxxxxxxxx> Sent: Wed, 13 Dec 2006 11:45:34 -0800 (PST) To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: RE: [xsl] Problem with Xpath Thank you the .//info worked. But I guess I have a new problem now, since there is some styling to format these levels as 1, 2, 3 etc, now if the second<l1> tag matched then the numbering starts with 2. instead of 1. Is there any way to start this numebring at 1 instead of 2 so that even in between if there are levels that have to be missed the numbering stays as 1,2 , 3 and not 2, 5, ,6 etc. Please let me know. --- cknell@xxxxxxxxxx wrote: > Your example XML file does not contain elements with > the local names "company" and "product".
