As I stripped my stylesheet to prepare a small example for you to look at,
it suddenly worked. I must have done something wrong, though I can't find
what it was anymore. 

At the risk of not being taken seriously anymore on this list, I must
confess I'm finding (parts of) DSSSL rather difficult. I'm wondering if it
has to do with my background, which is in humanities. (I'm currently working
as a tech writer at a software company). I've been working with SGML for
some time and am comfortable with it, but I have *absolutely no* programming

I'm wondering if most DSSSL users have a programming background? Or does it
just take some time to learn DSSSL? I'm used to learning things within a
couple of days, but this is taking me weeks already.

I'm surprised that you get no errors and no results.  Can you
provide a small stylesheet and instance that demonstrates the
