Oh, I see I misread your post. I thought you wanted to put the
table in the stylesheet, sorry.  Can't you just use a normal
key lookup?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:myns=""

<xsl:output method="text" />

<xsl:key name="Keys" match="Keys/Key" use="@name" />
<xsl:template match="/">
<xsl:apply-templates select="/A/B/C/*"/>
<xsl:template match="Referrer">
<xsl:value-of select="key('Keys', @ref)/@value"/>


OK, I think I misunderstood how keys work. So the template says match Keys/key, does that mean match Keys/key anywhere or from the root?
