You appear to be expecting that XSLT can act on  the current state of a
drop down list in a web page. It can not. The XSLT process has finished
(conceptually at least) before the browser renders the page.

The model is

You have some XML input (in a form that you have not yet shown us).

XSLT converts that input to HTML.

The browser renders the HTML.

So, any questions about how to get the browser to display or act on
mouse interaction, are purely a matter of html/javascript. If you said
what HTML/javascript you needed in the output file, and what your input
looked like, then someone mightbe able to suggest some XSLT.

When you do post XML please try to post the actual (but small) XML not
the view of XML as shown by your browser, which can't be used for
testing any possible solutions due to the fact that it's not valid XSLT
(or even well formed XML)

" <!DOCTYPE xsl:stylesheet (View Source for full doctype...)>"

would not get past an XMl parser and all the + and -

> - <xsl:template match="/">
> - <html xmlns="";
