Ack! You are right. That's wrong. I actually want to include all the
children AND the parent item. (so, a menuItem that has a child of pageID
= X and all the child menuItems of that menuItem)

So that takes me back to where I started...seems like this is what I
really need:

xsl:for-each select="//menuItem[ancestor-or-self::/menuItem/pageID =

Though, that, clearly, is not the proper syntax, as it still doesn't
return the parent node (the menuItem that has a pageID = X)

Why is XSL so hard? ;o)

Well, I'm really not sure. I'm not clear on how sort works. I have a
select that grabs a node, I then sort that node, then don't I need to
select the first 3 from that sorted node if I only want to list 3 items?
