RE:  xsl:number problem
Michael,

I just found out that you are one of the authors of Professional XML!  It was one of my first XML books.  I never paid attention to who wrote it until now.:)  Thanks for your help.

Regards,

Charlene

is a pattern. xsl:number depends implicitly on the current node.
