I realize it is often bad form to talk to yourself but hopefully it
provides more insight into my problem and therefore more clarity for a
possible solution.

Hi all,

I have an excerpt of a wddx data being generated from query data in
ColdFusion 5 and I need to simplify the structure with an intermediate
xsl transform so that I can consume the simplified form in a mail merge


I realize the following code does not work but it is the
pull/procedural approach I keep getting stuck heading towards:

<xsl:template match="var/recordset">
	<xsl:variable name="rowCount" select="@rowCount"/>
	<xsl:variable name="fieldNames" select="@fieldNames"/>
	<xsl:for-each from="1" to="$rowCount" index="row">
		<xsl:element name="{../@name}">
			<xsl:for-each list="$fieldNames" index="col">
				<xsl:element name="{$fieldNames[$col]}">
					<xsl:value-of select="field[@name=$col]::child[position()=$row]"/>

Can anyone point me towards a better approach using a push/functional
approach to make simplification of wddx recordsets contextually
