Wendell, considering the possible intent of Steve to wrap all output inside one <div>, it is probably better if he does go back to using the // syntax, but not in the way I proposed, but more like this (assuming that the match="option" was a mistake from Steve, it doesn't even have an @name, I replace it here with "section"):

<xsl:template match="section">
<span class="two"><label>
<xsl:value-of select="(@name | .)[1]" /> <!-- xslt 1.0 syntax now -->
<xsl:apply-template select=".//answers" />

Well if you wish to humor your aversion to "//" you could always write:

<xsl:apply-templates select="descendant::answers"/>

... which would arguably be clearer, too. (This is unlikely to make any performance difference though.)
