Yes you are right it's a very informative page. But I have another
problem anyway. I'm using a cascade of XSL files. One which serves as
interface e.g. person.xsl for all person xmls and dependent on the
person xml it calls a specific xsl. So in my case the key definition
should base on a param which holds the nodeset to transformed. BUT the
key definition is made before the param is defined within the template:

<xsl:key name="elements-by-name" match="/*/*" use="name(.)" />
  	<xsl:template name="default">

So the match attribute /*/* should base on the param which is defined
later (because xsl:key has to be drclared as top level element)! Is
there any solution except referencing this XSL directly from the XML

Best regards,

|You have to use the same context in both the key and the
|key retrieval:
|  <xsl:key name="elements-by-name" match="/*/*" use="name(.)" />
|  <xsl:template match="/*">
|    <xsl:variable name="unique-elements" select="*[generate-id()=
|     generate-id(key('elements-by-name',name(.)))]"/>
|    <html>
|      <table>
|        <tr>
|          <xsl:apply-templates select="$unique-elements" mode="header"
|        </tr>
|     ...
|      </table>
|    </html>
|  </xsl:template>
|Wouldn't you think it's a good idea to read the URLs I posted? There
