Thanks Jeni,

That was the problem.

That's the right kind of thing, but remember that XPath indexes count
from 1 rather than from 0, so:

<xsl:if test="value[1] > 0">...</xsl:if>

tests whether the *first* value element has a value greater than 0. If
you want to test the second, then use:

<xsl:if test="value[2] > 0">...</xsl:if>

You don't need to do ./value -- that just tells the processor to go
from the context node to its child value element, and all relative
paths go from the context node anyway.

Also note that value > 0 tests whether *any* value element child has a
numeric value greater than 0, rather than testing the last one.
