But xsl:key must be top-element, what if I had following structure: <root> <body> <item pos="1" name="n1"/> <item pos="2" name="n2"/> <item pos="3" name="n2"/> <item pos="4" name="n3"/> <item pos="5" name="n4"/> <item-filter> <allow-items with-name="n2"/> <allow-items with-name="n4"/> </item-filter> </body> <body> <item pos="1" name="n2"/> <item pos="2" name="n3"/> <item pos="3" name="n5"/> <item-filter> <allow-items with-name="n3"/> </item-filter> </body> </root> and wanted to filter items of each body element by it's own item-filter? > cheers > andrew Br, Tomas
