Did I say the output file was RTF. THis doesn't appear to be working but it looks
like it might if the output was HTML.

This is more of a headache than it appears to be worth since I can't seem 
to get it straight. I can comment out lines

 (let (	(FNAME (select-elements (children (current-node))"FIRST"))
	(LNAME (select-elements (children (current-node))"LAST"))
;	(ORG (select-elements (parent (current-node))"ORGANISATION"))
;	(DIV (select-elements (parent (current-node))"DIVISION"))
;	(nEMAIL (select-elements (parent (current-node))"EMAIL"))

and still get ORGANISATION, DIVISION and EMAIL OUTPUT, but in the order they appear in the doc 
instance. I must be missing something fundamental about DSSSL processing. 

I do have one specific question. Are there other form of this constructin

(LNAME (select-elements (children (current-node))"LAST"))

is is possible to replace current-node with the name of a node like 

(let (
     (LNAME (select-elements (children (AUTHNAME))"FIRST"))

instead of current-node??
