It's similar to another thread today called "Wrapping Problem" - usually
called positional grouping.
That's the first following sibling that's an Mname or an Lname, provided
it's an Mname.

I have included a snippet from my xslt that I am having difficulties with. My source XML can contain several authors names but those names don't have to contain a middle name. The problem with my xslt is that when an author doesn't contain a middle name it will pull the middle name from the next author after it. Obviously this is no good as it creates a name that is incorrect. I'm not sure how to tell the xslt that if there is no middle name not to grab <authorMname from the next author. Any ideas?
XML Code Sample:
<author><authorFname>John</authorFname> <authorLname>Dai</authorLname>, <authorDegree>MD</authorDegree>;
<xsl:for-each select="Story/author/authorFname"> <!-- Adjusted to allow for multiple authors --> <Author> <FirstName> <xsl:value-of select="."/> </FirstName> <MiddleName> <xsl:value-of select="following-sibling::authorMname"/> </MiddleName> <LastName> <xsl:value-of select="following-sibling::authorLname"/> </LastName> <Suffix> <xsl:value-of select="following-sibling::authorSuffix"/> </Suffix> <Affiliation> <xsl:value-of select="following-sibling::authorAffiliation"/> </Affiliation> </Author> </xsl:for-each>
