Khalil, when you see an element such as <office:foo>, the "office" denotes a "namespace". You may want to read intros on the web about namespaces.

I am just starting with XSLT tutorials and all the tutorials have
'regular' tags:
<blah> however the ones I have to work with have a different
convention <office:document>  so the ':' throw me a bit off specially
when it doesnt work as expected.
