I am trying to start the loop at node 4 (child 4) of the 'whatever' parent:
<Whatever> <child1>

I am using the following

 <xsl:for-each select="Whatever">
           <xsl:when test="position()&gt;3"> <!-- Here is the problem -->
         <xsl:for-each select="*[text()]"> <!--start of process-->
          <h3><font color="#00007f"><i><xsl:value-of
           <p><font color="#008000"><xsl:value-of select="."/></font></p>
           </xsl:for-each> <!--end of process-->

At the moment the display is not doing as I wish.

<xsl:for-each select="Whatever/child[position() &gt; 3]"> is more succinct and would get you the nodes you want. No inner choose/when or for-each is necessary.

Your problem is happening because your xsl:when is evaluating the position of the Whatever node, not its children.
