You've simply created three element nodes. You haven't attached them to any parent, therefore they are not siblings, and never were. If you want to make them siblings, use <xsl:variable name="foo" as="document-node()"> <xsl:document> <foo/><foo/><foo/> </xsl:document> </xsl:variable> or use the old syntax, which you can regard as an abbreviation for the above: <xsl:variable name="foo"> <foo/><foo/><foo/> </xsl:variable> Michael Kay http://www.saxonica.com/
