Interesting. It appears to work fine as it is for the first iteration.
which processor? You should report that as a bug, it is a syntax error
and you should get no output at all.

You know... that's a good question. The server we're using is Tomcat 5.5 on a Debian platform, but I'm not sure which XSL processor the goblins have opted for.

From the list guidelines, you can try this:, it will tell you what version and type (or vendor) your processor is.

But I have not heard of any processor allowing xsl:key as something else than a root-element (the key is meant to be global and do a global hashing/keying of some kind as to speed up processing, which is not suitable in a dynamic context). Are you sure that what you posted is what your processor actually processes?
