Hi Michael,
Sorry about the lack of detail. Given the following:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
            <nodeC ID="foo" />
            <nodeC ID="bar">
                <!-- XSL processing adds nodes here. -->
            <nodeC ID="baz" />
            <nodeE />

I have a template that matches nodeC based on its ID, copies it contents and
appends child nodes.
Its at this time that much info gets derived which is useful elsewhere. Of
course I can use XPath in
another template and derive it all over again, however what I am after is to
simply insert a new node
in another position. The schema permits the second node I want to generate to
exist as a child of any

I will match on many IDs and encounter many scenario's where I end up
generating data used to
construct the new child elements appended to the nodeC elements whose ID is of
interest. Every
time that happens, I want to use this same info and insert other nodes as
children in any nodeA.

Thanks for the patience everyone,
