Why put people to work fixing something that is already broken such that one cannot even help towards the problem you cite? How do we know you even have working code if it has syntax errors? Are you asking for assistance or are you asking us to do all your work for you?
We are talking about a capitalized D here! Forgive me as I am not perfect and in doing some quick and dirty pattern matching to make my code look pretty a D was capitalized.
I'm with David ... you can help others help you by posting an illustration of working input files and expected results, and a working stylesheet even if it doesn't do what you want. Look at what I did in my post to you here:
You will see a transcript at the bottom where I type the source file, type the stylesheet file, and reveal the end results as the execution of an XSLT processor. Anyone working with the archives can now extract those working components, get it working in their system, and expand on it from there for their specific issues.
Is that so hard, and so unreasonable to expect? How can you expect people to respond if you don't make it easy for them to do so?
