Maybe it'll help you to think of the following C/C++/Java construct:

	y = (x == a? c : d)

Perhaps you think it's natural, but in (almost) any procedural language, the

conditional processing comes *outside* the assignment.  This makes more 
sense to me, and this is why I have a hard time with XSL. :)

Instead of "if x is a, assign c to y, if x is b, assign d to y" it's "assign

y a value: if x is a, then c, if x is b, then d".

I'll get it eventually though. :)
