Hi Ken

thanks for your rapid response to my question. The first solution has
worked just fine. You were correct in your comment about my oversight in
wiping out attributes. I noticed that after I had posted to the list.

I am testing the xsl in XmlSpy and as such I am not sure of what
'processing engine' is being used but the second solution produces an
error dialog stating that "Variables and parameters cannot be used in

I assume that despite the version being stated as being 2.0 it is still
processing using 1.0?

I will happily take on any criticism for what I have done and any
misdirection was my own from what I have been able to gleen from books
and on-line. Any misinterpretations are my own. (San Francisco is
probably a bit far for a training course)
