What I want is all elements named item which are descendants of the current element - but I am not sure what the syntax would be (still looking). I don't know xsl:key or how it could help me - do you know of a good example/URL? > I didn't fully follow your program logic but if this comment means that > you want to process all but the last $remaining nodes in the > selection then you can do > > <xsl:for-each select="(...... whatever you had before) > [position() < last()-$remaining]"> > I have a question about position(). If this xsl:for-each contained an xsl:sort, the position() values in the select of the for-each would not be the sorted positions, right? <xsl:for-each select="whatever[position() < last()-$remaining]"> <xsl:sort select="somethign"> <!-- would the node position() values here be the same as those in the for-each? --> Hopefully I am making some sense and not just confusing myself.
