Well, your stylesheet is riddled with errors. > <xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="www.3org.com/TR/WD-xsl"> That namespace resembles the namespace for the old Microsoft dialect of XSL, but even for that dialect, it's wrong. First decide whether you want to use Microsoft WD-xsl or W3C XSLT (they are quite different,and WD-xsl is effectively obsolete: see the MSXML FAQ at www.netcrucible.com ) and then type the namespace correctly, otherwise your document isn't even a stylesheet. > <xsl:template match="/"> > > <xsl:template match="person"> Template rules are never nested in XSLT. > <xsl:value-of select="person/given-name" /> Delete "person/": you're looking for a <person> element within a <person> element. > > <xsl:value-of match="family-name" /> Change "match" to "select". I suggest you start by taking some sample stylesheets written by someone else and getting them to work in your environment. Then see if you can modify them to create your own.
