LOL, like "duh" (me)... Looks like I need to spend more time at ZVON's XLab.

Tonight I've really thought about how I still think "procedurally" and not
"declaratively" when using XSL...

Oh... Thanks... I was going to look up the Saxon extension but haven't had
time... For some reason I assumed "P" was the block you chose because of the
HTML <p> tag... Right before you wrote back I noticed there were two P's in
the expression--and that's what I didn't change before. But now I know I
don't have to change it at all.

Super-thanks again,
