Isnt that the BEST moment when it all comes together and it makes complete and perfect sense how it all works! :)

This all looks really good! Im sure you will find areas in which to speed things up or fine tune things here and there but most of that comes from personal style and preference and not necessarily from any sort of XSLT "gospel".

Enjoy your victory on this one as you did an extremely quick ramp up on just how powerful templates can be when used in the way they were designed. Nice Work!

But don't forget the golden rule of XSLT (which, by the way, is the same golden rule found in Golf)... As soon as you get it you realize just how much you don't get it... Huh???!!! I know, confusing and twisted way to look at it but any seasoned golfer or XSLT developer knows exactly what I am saying... as soon as you believe you have something nailed down something will come along that makes you question whether or not you ever got it in the first place... which you did... theres just a bit more to it than you first realized... and as such you need to erase a bit of what you thought was correct and add to it a bit more of what is actually correct...

None-the-less you have hit a HUGE milestone in an extremely short period of time and should congratulate yourself as such... Again, Nice Work!

Best regards,
