Your xsl:when start-tags are written as empty tags because they end with "/>", so the first "</xsl:when>" is being matched with the xsl:choose start-tag, and naturally they don't match. Try: <xsl:when test="substring(@DateReceived,6,2) = '01'">January</xsl:when> etc. Also, you could declare a variable to hold the value of the substring and just test against the variable value in each of your test attributes so that your xsl:choose is easier to read (and probably quicker as well).
