Using XSLT 2.0 is not required.  But if it will make resolving this

If you want to display details in a separate iframe then you need to generate additional result documents to be displayed in the iframe. For that you need to use xsl:result-document which is only supported in XSLT 2.0. (Or you would need to use XSLT 1.0 with a processor that has an extension to create additional documents.)

Here is an example stylesheet using xsl:result-document to create additional documents to be rendered in the iframe. It is an adaption of your original stylesheet, you might want to refactor it later based on the comments already posted on the list.

<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0"

<xsl:template match="/">

<style type="text/css">

.linktext { font-family: Arial; font-size: 9pt; font-weight: bold; color: black; text-decoration: none }

a:visited { text-decoration: none }
a:hover { text-decoration:none; color: blue; }
a:active {text-decoration: none; color:red}

.header {
font-family: Arial;
font-size: 12pt;
font-weight: bold

<table style="width:100%">
<th width="40%" class="header">Symptoms</th>
<th width="60%" class="header">Corrective Actions</th>
<td valign="top">
<table border="0">
<xsl:for-each select="fault-knowledge-base/symptoms/symptom">
<xsl:result-document href="{@id}.html">
<html lang="en">
<title>Actions for symptom <xsl:value-of select="@id"/></title>
<xsl:for-each select="/fault-knowledge-base/corrective-actions/corrective-action[@id = current()/corrective-action-ref/@idref]">
<li><xsl:value-of select="text"/></li>
<td><a href="{@id}.html" target="I2" class="linktext"><xsl:value-of select="text"/></a></td>
<iframe name="I2" marginwidth="3" marginheight="3" height="580" width="100%" src="about:blank" align="left" frameborder="0" scrolling="auto">
