hi!

i would have an additional question to this:

if my document would look like this:

<root>
   <descriptions>
     <description>this is an apple</description>
     <description>this is an orange</description>
   </descriptions>
   <group>
      <apple>bla</apple>
      <orange>bla</orange>
   </group>
   <group>
      <apple>bla</apple>
      <orange>bla</orange>
   </group>
   <order>
     <column name="orange" />
     <column name="apple" />
   </order>
</root>


how could i get the matching description for every column,
when i loop though them via the order described in the order
node?

somehow i cannot think of a way to do that with xpath : /

thanks!

ciao!
florian
