Thank you for your kind input.  I did debate about adding the prefix
of "Saxon Error:" to my subject line.  In the end, I decided to add it to help
filter out those not familiar with Saxon.  In the future I will refrain from
adding similar prefixes.  My intent was not to point a finger at Saxon.
Initially I did put the "or" clause inside the predicate, like you suggested.
Still, I received the same "Error" message.

At this point, I will do some
more reading and testing.  I'm pretty sure the problem is with my
understanding.  Saxon is a great product and has never proved to be a problem
for the last five years I've been using it.  So, back to "XSLT 2.0 and XPath
2.0 4th Ed. Programmer's Reference" by Michael Kay.

matches both conditions at the same time. From my understanding (which
probably leaves much to be desired), either the para element doesn't have the
@selectout attribute or (if it does) the @selectout attribute contains 'html'.

I have the strong feeling that this is not all of the error message,
as I have only seen it giving you the other match as well

Anyway, why don't
you put the or clause inside the predicate?

match="para[not(@selectout) or
contains(@selectout, 'html')]"

PS: If you think this would be a
Saxon error you should have directed your question to the saxon-help list. If
you think it is an XSLT problem, please do not prefix your subject like you
