RE: Numbering and adding commas
Your code is: <xsl:for-each select="answer"> <xsl:if test="position() != last()"> <xsl:apply-templates select="."/>, <xsl:text/> </xsl:if> </xsl:for-each> which means for each answer, if it is not the last answer, process the answer and then output a comma. Clearly you want for each answer, process the answer, and if it is not the last, output a comma. Just move the apply-templates out of the conditional.
