sorry all, thought my original request might confuse. Time for more
illustration. My XML (the part we're interested in anyway) looks like this:

  <SALES name="Sales" grade="none">***.*</SALES>
  <PROFIT name="Profit" grade="none">**.*</PROFIT>
  <EPS name="EPS" grade="none">**.*</EPS>
  <CFPS name="CFPS" grade="none" />
  <DPS name="DPS" grade="none">**.**</DPS>
  <PE name="P/E Ratio" grade="none">**.*</PE>
  <DIVCOVER name="Div Cover" grade="none">*.*</DIVCOVER>
  <DIVYIELD name="Yield" grade="none">*.*</DIVYIELD>
  <PEG name="PEG Factor" grade="none" />

Now I want to set up a function that will loop 9 times, and then retrieve
the value of that child node. I don't want to refer to each child by their
name, as this would mean getting rid of the loop and having nine table rows.
There must be a way of accessing CFPS without calling it by name. So again,
can I get the value of CFPS by doing something like:

xsl:value-of select="../../../ESTIMATEDATE/child(4)/@name"

Anyone had this problem?

Thanks if you know
