Re: Finding immediately preceding node.
Thanks David: That is what I am afraid of. It would be so easy to set a variable as a switch in the parent but you can't seem to do that with variables because they can't be transferred across templates. In XML processing looking at parents is common problem. You can do it very easily in DOM, I just can't figure out how to do it in XSLT. I am taking Ken's advice and rewriting the XSLT to use <xsl:for-each> but I am still having difficulty finding the immediately preceding-sibling. Now it is always giving a true because there is a qualifying sibling in the tree. Thanks again.
