The XPath expression in the inner for-each is being evaluated with the
context node set to the element selected in the outer for-each. So it's
looking for a MainRoot element that's the child of a
MainRoot/ContentTypeProperty/Record, and there isn't one.

It looks to me as if you're one of those users who's using xsl:for-each
because it looks simpler than xsl:apply-templates. Some people advise never
using for-each until you've mastered template rules, because actually there
are lots of traps to fall into.
