Could you show the stylesheet, or rather, a self-contained stylesheet that displays the problem you have.

Note that in the two example documents you use column names "col1" and "Col1", and XPath 1.0 does only case-sensitive string comparisons.

xsl:if for that.

Yes, if the loop is a recursive template call, but not if you're processing using xsl:for-each or xsl:apply-templates as they're not "loops".
