Your suggestion worked like a charm. I added some tabs and newline
characters as needed for my purposes. There is one more aspect of
this project that has me really puzzled. Suppose that some quiz
items have more than one answer. I changed item 3 of the the XML file
to represent this situation.
<Directions>Underline the subject in each sentence. If the
subject is an understood you, write you.?</Directions>
<Item>1. Find your seats quickly.<Answer>you</Answer></Item>
<Item>2. During open auditions there are very few empty
<Answer>seats</Answer> in the auditorium.</Item>
<Item>3. Have <Answer>you</Answer> and <Answer>Marsha</Answer> heard
the director's name?</Item>
Here is my current stylesheet.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0">
<xsl:apply-templates select="Story/GrammarTopic" />
<xsl:text> </xsl:text><xsl:text>	</xsl:text>
<xsl:number level="any" format="1.	"/>
This works great except, of course, it numbers all the answers
consecutively. The output looks like this:
What I want to do now is get both answers for item 3 ("you" and
"Marsha") together on one line like this.
3. you, Marsha
I have a feeling that this will involve some complicated routines. I
have reviewed The XSLT Cookbook and several other resources, but I am
not even sure where to start.
Again, any help will be greatly appreciated.
