Once I get the ASIN, I want to use that ASIN to get the product review. Heres my xslt. ITs not working because it puts all the ASINS in one url instead of puttting each ASIN in each url.

My XML is as follows
<name>White Widgets</name>
<name>Blue Widgets</name>


<xsl:template match="catalog/product" name="reviews">
<xsl:param name="keyword"><xsl:value-of select="translate(translate(name,' ','+'),' '' ', '')"/>
<xsl:variable name="url2" select="concat(' http://ecs.amazonaws.com/onca/xml?Service=AWSECommerceService&amp;AWSAccessKeyId=[MY KEY]&amp;Operation=ItemSearch&amp;Keywords=',$keyword,'&amp;SearchIndex=Blended')"></xsl:variable>
<xsl:variable name="ASIN">
<xsl:value-of select="document($url2, .)/a:ItemSearchResponse/a:Items/a:Item/a:ASIN"/>
<xsl:variable name="url" select="concat(' http://ecs.amazonaws.com/onca/xml?Service=AWSECommerceService&amp;AWSAccessKeyId=[MY KEY]&amp;Operation=ItemLookup&amp;ItemId=',$ASIN,'&amp;ResponseGroup=Request,EditorialReview,Reviews,SalesRank&amp;Version=2008-08-19')">
<xsl:for-each select="document($url)/b:ItemLookupResponse/b:Items/b:Item/b:CustomerReviews/b:Review/b:Content">
<xsl:value-of select="."/>

Hi Tyler,
if you use document($url2, .)/a:ItemSearchResponse/a:Items/a:Item/a:ASIN you will fetch all ASIN from the reply and store in the $ASIN variable; I guess you want to do a <xsl:for-each select="document($url2, .)/a:ItemSearchResponse/a:Items"> followed by the <xsl:variable select="a:Item/a:ASIN"/>.

Hope this helps,
