My apologies.. my recreation of the code was inaccurate in that the
job_number, when hard-coded, should have three trailing spaces after it.
And this turns out to be the real culprit -- for reasons I don't understand,
passing a parameter & using that parameter in a 'xsl:for each' like:

<xsl:for-each select="xml/rs:data/z:row[@job_number[.=$job]]">

preserves the trailing spaces while:

<xsl:for-each select="key('by_job', $job)">

strips the trailing spaces. Since my XML Source has job_numbers of the form
'12345   ', the second will not work.
