[xsl] Recognize nested element (check for same-name parent)

After our DTD guys simplified our DTD to change steps and substeps into 
nested steps, I now have the dificulty of inserting an <ol> when a step 
is nested (in fact a substep).


<step>Do the following:
   <step>Select: Start</step>
   <step>Select: Yes</step>

XSLT so far (unsuccessful): I tried with xsl:if to see if the parent 
(..) equals the element 'step', so a match on step with parent step gets 
extra <ol> in front.

<xsl:template match="step">
   <xsl:if test="..='step'">
     insert ol if first and /ol if last (no problem here)

I considered doing two templates for step and step/step, but fear nested 
steps will be processed twice or three times.

I'm using WinXP and XMLspy to create the XSLT. And Solaris and Perl + 
Sablotron as a production system.

Someone must have had and solved this same problem... Apparently I 
googled for the wrong search terms.
