paragraph on hierarchy

This is something of a FAQ, and DaveP has a writeup of some early answers to it at http://www.dpawson.co.uk/xsl/sect2/flatfile.html

The solution is basically what you have, but achieves your desiderata of speed and elegance by using keys.

And you asked:

Also: I don't understand why this didn't work: if anyone can explain,
I'd be grateful:


<xsl:apply-templates select="following-sibling::paragraph[preceding-sibling::section[1]=$sect]"/>

Inside the predicate is not a test for node identity; it's a test for string equivalence, which isn't the same at all.

Keys are fun and easy once you get the hang of em.
