Thanks for your reply . Maybe I used the wrong
terminology in my first post. (XSL vs. XSLT)?
( I'm not an expert at this, as you guessed )
I can't seem to legally use the code you
suggest. Perhaps it would help if I posted the
first few lines of my .xsl file;
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
   <xsl:template match="/">

thanks again,
