Are you looping through each "title" and "episode" element?, or is their
only one "title" and one "episode" element ?

If their will only be one element of each, why not reference the element
using the full path to it.

<xsl:if test="starts-with(encyclopedia/entry/title, 'Q') or
starts-with(encyclopedia/entry/episode, 'Q')">
	<xsl:call-template name="inserted.text"/>

I know of another way if you have to loop through eacg title and episode,
but I'll wait to see your reply

	I have a problem, and no doubt the answer is simple...

	I have the following XSLT snippet:

<xsl:if test="starts-with(//title, 'Q') or starts-with(//episode, 'Q')">
	<xsl:call-template name="inserted.text"/>

	The document structure it applies to is like so:

			<title>A Title</title> -or- <episode>An episode name.</episode>

	The <xsl:if/> referenced above happens at the <encyclopedia/> level.

	I just want to call the template "inserted.text" if the title or episode
do not start with the letter 'Q'.

	As it is, I can't get the inserted.text to matter what I do.
Am I walking down the node tree incorrectly?
