xslt nullpointerexception
I don't see any obvious errors in there, but you might try the changes I gave 
in a response to one of your other emails.  Since you are using Xalan, you 
might try running your stylesheet with org.apache.xalan.xslt.Process (if you 
aren't already) and give it the -TT, -TTC, -TG, and/or -TS command line 
options.  These will spit out trace information (-TT and -TTC are probably 
the most useful) that will let you figure out where in your stylesheet the 
problem occurs.  Could you post the results here?
