   <xsl:if test="parent::step">

Worked like a charm. Thanks.

I know, I've been cheating with:
<xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">&lt;ol&gt;</xsl:text>

My XSLT so far is:

<xsl:template match="step">
	<xsl:if test="parent::step">
		<xsl:if test="position()=1">
		<xsl:if test="position()=last()">

My end result is a procedural document, with numbered steps from 1 to
say 100, and section headings inbetween like PREPARE, REMOVE PART, FIT
PART, ADJUST PART, FINALIZE, and these do not restart the numbering. So
I have already started an <ol> as soon as I see the first section, and
so the first level <step> only needs a <li> tag around it, while the
second/third needs a <ol> before the first and after the last.
I'm trying to accomplish:


  <step>Step 1.</step>
  <step>Do as follows:
    <step>Select: Start</step>
    <step>Select: Yes</step>
  <title>REMOVE PART</title>
  <step>Step 3.</step>
  <step>Do as follows:
    <step>Select: Initialize Motor</step>
    <step>Select: Yes</step>

Desired output HTML:

 1. Step 1.
 2. Do as follows:
     2.1. Select: Start
     2.2. Select: Yes
 3. Step 3.
 4. Do as follows:
     4.1 Select: Initialize Motor
     4.2 Select: Yes
