xsl for each select option
Try something like:


<xsl:for-each select="/MCRoot/Lists/Languages/Language">
	<xsl:if test="/MCRoot/Lists/Person/Languages[@value =
		<xsl:attribute name="selected">selected</xsl:attribute>
   <xsl:value-of select="@value"/>


<warning>this code was lifted and amended from something I wrote about a
year ago - so no guarantees that it works...*grin*</warning>

Hope it helps - as you can see, if using IE5, the only "nice" way of doing
it is by using the context() function.
