You don't show your source XML, but if you are testing for empty elements then your code is wrong. <xsl:if test="JobTitle"> tests if a JobTitle element exists <xsl:if test="JobTitle!=''"> tests if a non-empty JobTitle element exists (where "empty" means that its string-value is an empty string) > > 2) How does one check to see what the parent of an > element is?
