Thanks very much for your help.

I have tried, but still can't get it to work for the Track. The position and Histogram attributes are perfect.

I have the luxury of also conrtolling the source xml document, so, after seeing how relatively easy it was to get the attribute values to work, I have changed the design so that the Track is also an attribute. I have gone through all the progarms and structures and accomplished that (Thank goodness for global edit and replace functions). Now I can cleanly redesign the templates.

I have this statement:
<xsl:copy-of select="/Report/TrackT1/Position[@position='Left

However, the TrackT1 part of the expression can also change -
to TrackT2,
TrackT3, Track5-18, etc, taking on various values.


if the variation is more than a change of name then in XSLT you can invoke a
function here:

/Report/f:find-track(., $param)/Position
