RE: How to code XSL to display two XML elements side by side

No magic here, just <td><xsl:value-of select="soldto/lastname"/></td> <td><xsl:value-of select="shipto/lastname"/></td> and so on. > Another question, I need to reuse the ShipTo info to > reprint it at bottom of the HTML. How can I code XSL so that I can reprint > ShipTo info at bottom of the HTML page? > Several possibilities: (a) just access the data a second time, using "pull" logic (xsl:for-each, xsl:value-of) (b) process the data using xsl:apply-templates ("push" logic) and use a different mode (c) write a named template to do the formatted and call it from both places (d) write a global variable to contain the formatted data as a result tree fragment, and reference the variable from both places.
