Hi Dennis....
If you're producing text, on the other hand, then the easiest way to
achieve the indentation is to pass down a 'indent' parameter from
template to template....

Another easiest way is to use our good friend, the much-maligned but faithful xsl:for-each, as in

<xsl:template match="group">
  <xsl:for-each select="ancestor::group">
    <xsl:text>   </xsl:text>

and do the same in the template matching "field" to get them indented too. (Put the for-each in a named template if you have to use it alot.)

This would work, wouldn't it Jeni? It's kind of a refinement of the count(ancestor::*) technique.
