Thanks for posting a clear example, that always helps. In future it also
helps to say if you want xslt 2 or xslt 1, in this case it wouldn't make
much difference, but in other cases it can make a lot....

Basically you want to set up a key to handle the association
of artists and titles.


<xsl:stylesheet  version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="";>
<xsl:output indent="yes"/>
<xsl:strip-space elements="*"/>

<xsl:template match="Catalog">
 <xsl:apply-templates select="cds/cd"/>

<xsl:template match="cd">
  <xsl:copy-of select="title"/>
  <artist><xsl:value-of select="key('artist',number)/name"/></artist>

<xsl:key name="artist" match="artist" use="number"/>



$ saxon cata.xml cata.xsl
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
      <title>Empire Burlesque</title>
      <artist>Bob Dylan</artist>
      <title>Hide Your Heart</title>
      <artist>Bonnie Tyler</artist>
