Thanks to all of you, you have cleared up some confusion for me.

Ok, I am a little closer to the solution, here is my XSL (box was next up on
my list):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
<xsl:param name="controller" select="'index.php'"/>
<xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes"/>

<xsl:template match="/sitemap">
  <DIV CLASS="navtree">
    <xsl:apply-templates />

<xsl:template match="*">
    <xsl:apply-templates />

<xsl:template match="link">
  <xsl:element name="A">
    <xsl:attribute name="HREF">/<xsl:value-of
select="$controller"/>/module/<xsl:value-of select="location/module"
/>/action/<xsl:value-of select="location/action" />/</xsl:attribute>
    <xsl:attribute name="ID"><xsl:value-of select="id"/></xsl:attribute>
    <xsl:attribute name="CLASS">menuitem</xsl:attribute>
    <xsl:value-of select="name"/>
  <xsl:apply-templates />
  <xsl:if test="link">
    <xsl:element name="DIV">
      <xsl:attribute name="CLASS">submenu</xsl:attribute>
      <xsl:apply-templates select="link"/>


So now what I did was I added xsl:apply-templates to the middle of the link
template, and I added a default template for all other nodes, I knew I was
on the right track so thanks for the help.

But what I really wanted was that all elements in the XHTML namespace would
be outputted to the results, and all of my extra XML tags like "name" for
instance, wouldn't be copied. Is this what the XHTML namespace is for?

This is the results I end up getting:

<TITLE>Testing 1 2 3</TITLE>

  <A HREF="/index.php/module/Products/action/Display/" ID="products"
    <short-description>More info on available products</short-description>
    <long-description>We have a variety of products to offer, to suit a wide
range of end users, from communications, to internet access, and the list
keeps growing! Check back often to see what we can do for

    <A HREF="/index.php/module/DialOne/action/Display/" ID="longdistance"
CLASS="menuitem">Long Distance</A>

Is there any way to do this? Once again, thanks for all the help.
