Hi there,
I am still struggling with mostof this stuff, but I have a question
related to the original data.

            <b apply="1">100</b>
            <c apply="1">100</c>

If I create the following stylesheet I get 100 100 output

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl=""; version="2.0">
    <xsl:template match="ROOT">
            <xsl:value-of select="LEVEL2/*/*[@apply='1']"/>

What I am not clear on is why does this return values and not nodes?
Or is this really returning both nodes and I am getting the value of
each one because of the <xsl:value-of select="..."/> expression?

As far as I can figure the expression ROOT/LEVEL2/*/*[@apply='1']"
says give me the  nodes that have the arrtibute apply=1 and are
grandchildren of level2.

I kind of though to get both values I would have to do something like

<xsl:template match="ROOT">
      <xsl:for-each select="LEVEL2/*/*[@apply='1']">
           <xsl:value-of select="."/>

Sorry if this seems really trivial but it helps me to better understand.
