I ran this on saxon, and see the created html files, and they are exactly what
I needed.  When I attempted running this in IE to see how the page looked, the
browser returned "Keyword xsl:for-each may not contain xsl:result-document."
Is there a way around this? Thanks so much for all of your help with 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>
select="/fault-knowledge-base/corrective-actions/corrective-action[@id =
           <li><xsl:value-of select="text"/></li>
<td><a href="{@id}.html" target="I2" class="linktext"><xsl:value-of
<iframe name="I2" marginwidth="3" marginheight="3" height="580"
width="100%" src="about:blank" align="left" frameborder="0"
Your browser does not support inline frames or is currently configured
not to display inline frames.
