Thank you very much, you´re right. I´m yet not really in the thinking of templates. I still try to "program" my xslt like I´m used to do it with Java-Programs.
But how can I do it, that the @name appears in a diffrent td.
The html output shoul look in text Form like:
Menu1 Submernu1
Submenu3 SubSubmenu1
Submenu5 SubSubmenu1
Menu2 Submenu1 SubSubmenu1

So I need to make the template varaible from the depth of the topic-level.

<xsl:template match="topic">
     <xsl:value-of select="@name"/>

Also if I´m in a topic level and there are more childs, the name of this topic level should not be displayed anymore, till every child was displayed.

Thanks for your help

Take care Michael

Hi Michael,

What David means is that XSL is a template language and you have to learn
to think in templates, not in for-each.
The node you want to do something with is "topic", so write a template for
Maybe this example will help you on the way (the depth of nesting in
"topic" doesn't matter, the template will call itself):

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="";>
 <xsl:output method="html"/>

 <xsl:template match="*">
   <table border="1">

 <xsl:template match="topic">
     <xsl:value-of select="@name"/>
