Re: newbie variable question
   <xsl:if test="string(type)='DMA'">
      <xsl:value-of select="name"/>
     <xsl:variable name="ValueExists" select="'True'"/>
    </xsl:if> the scope of your variable definition ends here.
<xsl:if  test="$ValueExists!="'True'"> so its not defined here.

Also xsl has boolean valued variables so you don't need to mess with
faking things with th estring 'True'.

<xsl:template match="/">
  test="area/grp[type='DMA']/name |
        description[not(/area/type='DMA')]" />
