Readers,

  This post was mistakenly posted in an x-query mailing list, where it
  was suggested to post here. For any help that can be provided, thanks
  in advance.

  The objective is to learn how to select nodes in an xml file and use
  xpath and xslt to select nodes of interest and display in a new file.

  An xml file was created:

   <?xml version=3D"1.0" encoding=3D"utf-8"?>
    <!-- Edited by XMLSpy=C2=AE, taken from http://www.w3schools.com-->
    <?xml-stylesheet type=3D'text/xsl" href=3D"xstylesheetexample.xslt" ?>

    An xml stylesheet was created:

   <xsl:stylesheet version=3D"1.1"
  xmlns:xsl=3D"http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
            <xsl:import href=3D"xqueryexampledata.xml"/>
            <xsl:output
                    method=3D"xml"
                    doctype-public=3D"-//W3C//DTD XHTML Basic 1.1//EN"

   doctype-system=3D"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-basic/xhtml-basic11.dtd"
                    encoding=3D"utf-8"

                    standalone=3D"yes"
                    version=3D"1.1"
                    />
            <xsl:template
                    match=3D"author">

                                            name=3D'note' content=3D'xhtml
  document created by xml transformation' />
                                    <title>Test output web page</title>
                            </head>
                            <body>
                                    <p>
                                            <xsl:apply-templates/>
                                    </p>
                            </body>
                    </html>
            </xsl:template>
    </xsl:stylesheet>

    The text editor 'jedit' is used with xml plugins xslt, xquery, xml.
    The xslt transformer plugin is used to select the above xml file and
    xslt file for subsequent transformation, to create an output xhtml
    file.

    The result of this transformation is the creation of a new xhtml file
    (as stated in the stylesheet above):

   Clearly, there's a lot to learn in specifying the transformation correct=
ly!

    The ideal output is:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML Basic 1.1//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-basic/xhtml-basic11.dtd">
           <html xmlns=3D'http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml' lang=3D'en' xml:lan=
