Hi Jeni,
    Thank you so much for your reply.  I've been stuck for quite  a while.
The suggestion you made seems to be working, but I am having trouble with
the link being displayed.  When I click on a 'project title' in the table,
the url changes, showing that a different xml id is being displayed.
   eg.    http://yadda/yadda/yadda/project.xml#IDARE2GB  or
So, it appears that the  <a href="#{generate-ed}"> is working fine.  I have
"opened links in a new window" by right clicking the link, and it brings up
the url with a new #ID, but shows only a blank page.
     This Leads me to believe that I am still to blind in the xsl world to
figure out how to display the linked 'description' correctly (even with a
great example at my fingertips).
If there is something simple I may be overlooking, I would greatly
appreciate your help (as I do already).

Thanks much

Paul Grimes
