Thanks Frank,

But that uses the MSXML. I am using Xalan (company standard) to do the
transformation. Also, the one I modified (see link below) is a
cross-platform/cross-browser dhtml/js solution that does not require frames.

The DHTML/JS code is available at:
click on JavaScript Collapsible Lists

But, I got it working. My brain was not working when I tried my first
template (which I spent about 2hrs on...).  I left it alone for a few hours
and got back to it, started fresh, and finished in about 10 minutes.

Didn't get a chance to answer some of your specific questions. However,
 one possibility for the exp/coll "tree" list is XTree mentioned here a few
 days ago.

 I'm working with it now and although the XSL and XML seem to be tightly
 coupled, I think there's potential to decouple them.

Hope this helps somewhat.
