      <xsl:message terminate = "yes">Feel free to ask</xsl:message>
   </xsl:if >

with just a single test case...

Thanks, Vasu - it just shows that we all have something to learn.

Personally, I dislike "if-then" without an "else" clause & prefer an "else" with an explicit "do nothing" statement,
i.e. Rule: all execution paths should be explicit

Mapping this into the above, I should have included an <xsl:otherwise>

<xsl:with-param name="effort">basics</xsl:with-param> is better with <xsl:with-param name="effort" select = "'basics'"/>

Its true what andrew said.. you must learn atleast some basics or look into faqs or do some work before jumping into the lists...
anyway as you have asked, i shall give u some inputs ...

use a xsl:for-each select = "catagory" to loop through the catagories and use
<xsl:value-of select = "@type"/> to print the types. This is all XSL can do for you.
clicking the link and displaying the price is not its job.. you can possibly use javascript for this.

this might work for you

lemme do the whole thing for you. I think i have some free time.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="";>
<xsl:template match="orders">
<script type="text/javascript">

function myfunction (price)
// 1. get the div with id = "showprice".. this is where the price will show up

var showprice = document.getElementById ( "showprice")

//2. get the div with id = "price".. this is the div that has the price value
// this div is set to invisible mode by style= display:none

var priceVal = document.getElementById(price)

                // Setting the showprice div with the price value
                      showprice.innerHTML = priceVal.innerText;
        <table border="1">
                <td >
                    <xsl:for-each select="category">
                        <div id = "{@type}">
                            <a onclick="myfunction({price})" href = "#">
                                <xsl:value-of select="@type"/>
                        <div id = "{price}" style="display:none">
                            <xsl:value-of select="price"/>
                    <div id = "showprice"></div>

This should solve your problem:

<xsl:template match="bookstore">
<xsl:apply-templates select="book[(@author='Kay') or (@author='Tennyson')]" />
<xsl:call-template name="diy" />
<xsl:when test="($basics &gt;= 'understood')">
<xsl:message terminate = "yes">Feel free to ask</xsl:message>

<xsl:template match="book">
   <xsl:call-template name="read">
       <xsl:with-param name="effort">basics</xsl:with-param>
