I'm currently using keys with Xalan to group course-data by week of the

<xsl:key name="WosNachWoche" match="//KURS[VERANART='Wochenendseminar' and

Now I need to enhance grouping to work with courses from different
years, so I figured I'd just need to extend the use-term like this:

<xsl:key name="WosNachWoche" match="//KURS[VERANART='Wochenendseminar' and

'y'))" />

Unfortunately this isn't working for some reason I don't understand. For quick testing I use this template

<xsl:template match="/"> <xsl:for-each select="key('WosNachWoche',//*)"> <xsl:message> <xsl:value-of select="TITELKURZ"/> </xsl:message> </xsl:for-each> </xsl:template>

and found that the second use-term gives me NO results. Exploring
further it seems like as soon as I use concat in the use-expression I
stop getting any results.

Any ideas? What is the problem and how can I assemble a key with
weeknumber and year?

Have you updated the key() lookup too? You would need to use concat there as well.
