Ken, thanks a lot your script is running and provide the result I expected for that data.
But now I have a more complicated case. The following script bellow we
created has a mistake but can't find what is wrong!!!

You don't say what is wrong, so I don't know how any volunteer is supposed to tell you how to correct it.


And, anyway, your XSLT is structured quite unlike my suggestion to you. You seem to approach XSLT as if it were an imperative programming language, rather than taking advantage of inherent facilities in XSLT that make this task both easier and more robust.

You are binding variables unnecessarily, and making references to node lists as if they were arrays. You are duplicating code that is essentially identical, thus requiring multiple changes if you need to fix anything, rather than sharing code for each of the four entries.

I think you'll find that if you take an XSLT approach to the problem, rather than mimicking an imperative programming language, that any issues will be easier to find. You'll see I've only used one variable, that being for the ordinal prefix for the element names.


Without you telling us what is wrong, I've guessed what it is you want and the code is below.

I hope this helps. Though it seems you've ignored what I suggested to you in previous posts. Perhaps readers of the archive will find this somewhat helpful. The use of grouping nodes as being adjacent based on their position is a very useful approach.
