<xsl:template match="block" mode="variable"> <xsl:copy-of select="."/> <xsl:variable name="countlines" select="string-length(/) - string-length(translate(/,'
',''))" /> <xsl:value-of select="."/> </xsl:template> is the same code you used to count the whole document, just replace / (twice) by . if you want to just use the string value of the current element rather than the whole document. If you want to return a result tree fragment with that number as the string value of that number you then want to use $countlines not . in teh final value of, although of course as the variable is only used once you don't really need it. The first copy-of will copy the input into this result tree fragmnent which I assume you don't want, so <xsl:template match="block" mode="variable"> <xsl:value-of elect="string-length(.) - string-length(translate(.,'
',''))" />"/> </xsl:template> David ________________________________________________________________________ The Numerical Algorithms Group Ltd is a company registered in England and Wales with company number 1249803.
