OK I figured it out.  I created the two variables like I said, unioned
them together (never did that before), and used the '|' operator to get
the appropriate field when I needed to ouput them.  That last bit was a
stab in the dark that worked. <g>

I CAN use XSLT 2.0 and would prefer to do so.

Here is a sample input XML:

<?xml version="1.0"?>

The output XML should look like this:

<FieldValuePair name="label1" value="inspection"/>
<FieldValuePair name="value1" value="4.00"/>

<FieldValuePair name="label2" value="vsc"/>
<FieldValuePair name="value2" value="210.00"/>

<FieldValuePair name="label3" value="ppm"/>
<FieldValuePair name="value3" value="250.00"/>

As you can see, the first set of FieldValuePairs came from the /Fees
area of the input, and the 2nd and 3rd set of output nodes came from the
/Products nodes.  The output consists of values taken from Fees where
IsPublicOfficial ne 'true' and values taken from the Product nodes where
IsInsurance ne 'true'.  The output can contain a maximum of 3 pairs, and
the Fees must be exhausted before Products can be used.

I'm thinking I need to create 2 variables, one for the Fees nodes, one
for the Product nodes, and then combine them somehow?  I guess I need to
know how to create the variables (since the output nodes don't look like
the source nodes) and how to join them in the end.  Then, I can ouput
them how I like (max 3 items allowed in output).

Thanks very much for any help that can be provided.
