Hi Joris (don't know what happened with previous post)

This is an example of data I have pulled from another source and I will be
looking for the same structure.  The fields are obviously named slightly
different but you get the idea.  This is the output I receive once run
through Oxygen using Xalan.

Im not too sure where the XML / XSL disagree (original post)- could you
point that out for me.

In your xslt, there ithis statement:

<xsl:variable name="price" select="price" />

This will put the 'price' element (the child node of the context node) in a variable called 'price'.

But there aren't any 'price' elements in your XML.

TRy this stylesheet:

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl=""; version="1.0">
<xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes"/>
<xsl:strip-space elements="*"/>

<xsl:output method="xml" />

<xsl:template match = "/" > <DATAPACKET Version="2.0"> <xsl:call-template name="CDSMetaData"/> <ROWDATA> <xsl:apply-templates/> </ROWDATA> </DATAPACKET> </xsl:template>

<xsl:template name="CDSMetaData">
			<FIELD attrname="id" fieldtype="string" WIDTH="255"/>
			<FIELD attrname="price" fieldtype="string" WIDTH="255"/>
			<FIELD attrname="address1" fieldtype="string" WIDTH="255"/>
			<FIELD attrname="address2" fieldtype="string" WIDTH="255"/>
			<FIELD attrname="typedesc" fieldtype="string" WIDTH="255"/>
			<FIELD attrname="image" fieldtype="string" WIDTH="255"/>
			<FIELD attrname="bullets" fieldtype="string" WIDTH="255"/>
<xsl:template match="desc">

<xsl:template match="detail">
	<xsl:attribute name="{@name}"><xsl:apply-templates/></xsl:attribute>

<xsl:template match="section[@name='bullets']/d">
	<xsl:attribute name="starpoint{position()}"><xsl:apply-templates/></xsl:attribute>

<xsl:template match="section[@name='pics']/g">
	<xsl:attribute name="image{position()}"><xsl:apply-templates/></xsl:attribute>
