I have a vague suspicion that the culprit of your little problem is actually
the use of the last() function... (in combo with the sorted for-each)

What exactly do you need to achieve there?

If you need the last status element of the current SAVEIdea, you could try
something like the following :

change the last table-cell to

  <td style="font-size:8pt" valign="top">
    <xsl:apply-templates select="status_history">
      <xsl:sort select="{sort-on}" />

and add the following template to your stylesheet

<xsl:template match="status_history">
  <xsl:value-of select="status[last()]" />

This way, the context for the last() function will be correctly switched to
the sorted set of status elements in the current SAVEIdea being processed,
rather than the last one in the node-set you are processing with the

Hope this helps!
