With xslt transformations, it is better to think out what you want to achieve first. Your description above is not really ***what** you want to accomplish. What you really want to do here is something like this: If my sourcedocument has at least one of ( "getPerson" or "setPerson") method, I want to put a Person.h statement at the top of the output. With this this as the goal, you could write something like this: <xsl:variable name='insert-person-header' select='count(//method[@getPerson]) + count(//method[@setPerson]) > 0'/> <xsl:if test='$insert-person-header' #include <Person.h> </xsl:if> You could invoke this from a template that processes the root of the xml document, so that it would be invoked before the templates for the methods. In the templates that process your methods, you will not output anything about Person.h, since that would have been output (or not) earlier in the output. There are many variations and possibilities for optimization, but this may well be all you need. Cheers, Tom P XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
