Unfortunately this list is not a free service for technical assistance.

Technical assistance at no charge is sometimes
provided, but merely as a by-product of our ongoing discussion of XSLT.

If you do wish for technical assistance, you have (at least) two options:

1. Post a question or point for discussion
according to the list guidelines (at
http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list/), and
*hope* for a response, which cannot be guaranteed.

2. Hire a consultant or service provider.

Your post does not follow list guidelines; plus,
it conveys the impression that you expect it is
someone's responsibility to help you. But this is
not the case. No one is being formally
compensated for participating in this list.

In particular, the guidelines state:

In addition to following simple rules of net
etiquette and common sense, you will
improve the chances that you will receive prompt and helpful responses by:

  * Asking questions specific enough that
answers are possible. Describe what you
    are trying to do, how you approached it,
what happened, and why you dont like
    the result you got. Dont simply say it
gave me an error; paste in the error
    message (someone else can probably make sense of it).

  * Illustrating your question with a
demonstration of the problem. Well-composed
    questions frequently include a small XML sample, an XSLT stylesheet,
    results received, and the result that was
desired  all in miniature, to make
    it comprehensible to readers new to your
problem. (It is also not uncommon to
    discover what a problem actually is in the process of reducing it to an
    illustrative version.)

To this I can add something that ought to be plain common sense: the best way to get help is to offer it. If you can't offer help, then you need to offer something else valuable that convinces other readers that venturing to help you is worth their while.
