I'm supposed to be doing something else, but I just had to try this out
Having 'learnt' XSL by cut and paste, I think I'm still at the stage
where I need subtitles.
I added xmlns:msxsl="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xslt" to my
xsl:stylesheet declaration, and my first template now looks like this:

<xsl:template match="/">
  <xsl:variable name="menus">
	<xsl:apply-templates select="Menus"/>
  <xsl:for-each select="msxsl:node-set($menus)">
      <xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
      <xsl:attribute name="TOC">
        <xsl:number level="multiple" format="1.1"/>

Obviously, it doesn't work, otherwise I wouldn't be posting. I guess
what I don't understand is whether my for-each is for each node in the
nodeset.  You suggested mayb using an apply-templates, but I don't
really understand how to do an apply templates which won't eat my other
menus upstream (ok, I'll be honest, I just don't understand
apply-templates ;)
