I'm aware that my code was trying to do nothing other than repeat the line
"This is not showing up" each time it found an index node under page.  I had
some output that I was trying to generate and took it out (in case there was
something wrong with my syntax, which would not be unusual) and just stuck
in the text to see if that would appear... but the problem is that I can't
even get the text to appear in the output.  (Ultimately you're right that I
want to output the @name with some other stuff, but if I'm not finding the
node at all, I can't output the name at all.)  Also discovered that when I
use <xsl:apply-templates select="page">... that it won't find that either.
This is leading me to wonder if something is configured incorrectly on my
system, or perhaps something corrupted.

Any further thoughts?  Eric

I am not precisely sure what it is you want to do. You didn't say. At the 
moment your code seems to say for each <index> element do nothing. So, on 
that basis, I would expect it to produce nothing within the <xsl:for-each>.

However, perhaps you wanted to achieve something like this. This works 
adequately on Saxon. It doesn't produce anything spectacular but produces 
output of the value of the entry attribute for each <index> element.

<xsl:template match="page">
<xsl:value-of select="@name"/>
   <xsl:for-each select="index">
   <xsl:value-of select="@entry"/>
THIS IS NOT SHOWING UP  <!--*** problem here  -->

I guess it may be something like that that you wanted to produce.

Within the <xsl:for-each> element you need to define the processing you want

to be carried out.

I hope that helps.
