Reading is a good idea. Someone just gave me Jeni Tennison's book. Once I
get past this current snag I definetily need to spend some time reading.

Here is a complete example:

XML (not the whole document):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<KCX PAGE="-1" PAGE_LENGTH="-1" ROOT="section4
<DATA>
<VERSION>
<ITEM NAME="TEXT1" TYPE="text">Hurricanes owner feels NHL season is
gone</ITEM>
<ITEM NAME="TEXT2" TYPE="text">
<B>The both sides are so greedy!</B>
<P>I can't even afford to go see a game!</P>
</ITEM>
</VERSION>


XSL: I have only the templates involved in the creation of the document so
it is easier to trace. Each template is in a seperate file.

<xsl:template match="*" mode="_KCXFILE_">
<!-- fo root: all document properties go inside this tag -->
<fo:root xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format">
<!-- configure the page attributes -->
<fo:layout-master-set>
<fo:simple-page-master master-name="simple" page-height="29.7cm"
page-width="21cm" margin-top="1cm" margin-bottom="2cm" margin-left="2.5cm"
margin-right="2.5cm">
<fo:region-before extent="3.5cm"/>
<fo:region-body margin-top="2cm"/>
<fo:region-after extent="1.5cm"/>
</fo:simple-page-master>
</fo:layout-master-set>
<!-- ouput the content -->
<fo:page-sequence master-reference="simple">
<fo:static-content flow-name="xsl-region-before">
<fo:block>
<fo:external-graphic src="url(file:///images/topbanner/mainlogo.gif)"
space-after="1cm"/>
</fo:block>
</fo:static-content>
<xsl:call-template name="s1_pdf"/>
</fo:page-sequence>
</fo:root>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template name="s1_pdf">
<!-- text 1 -->
<fo:flow flow-name="xsl-region-body">
<fo:block font-family="Helvetica" font-size="12pt" font-weight="bold"
break-after="auto" space-after="10pt" text-align="left">
<xsl:call-template name="text_display_and_edit">
<xsl:with-param name="text_number" select="number('1')" />
</xsl:call-template>
</fo:block>
<!-- text 2 -->
<fo:block font-family="Helvetica" font-size="12pt" font-weight="normal"
text-align="left">
<xsl:call-template name="text_display_and_edit">
<xsl:with-param name="text_number" select="number('2')" />
</xsl:call-template>
</fo:block>
</fo:flow>
</xsl:template>

<!-- the next three templates are in the same file -->
<!-- the output type for this file is <xsl:output method="xml"
media-type="text/html"/> -->

<xsl:template name="text_display_and_edit">
<xsl:param name="text_number" />
<xsl:param name="textname" select="concat('TEXT',$text_number)" />
<xsl:if test="DATA/VERSION/ITEM[@NAME=$textname] !=''" >
<xsl:value-of select="DATA/VERSION/ITEM[@NAME=$textname]"/>
</xsl:if>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="P">
<fo:inline>
<xsl:apply-templates/>
</fo:inline>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="B">
<fo:inline font-weight="bold">
<xsl:apply-templates/>
</fo:inline>
</xsl:template>


Desired Document:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<fo:root xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format">
<fo:layout-master-set>
<fo:simple-page-master margin-right="2.5cm" margin-left="2.5cm"
margin-bottom="2cm" margin-top="1cm" page-width="21cm"
page-height="29.7cm" master-name="simple">
<fo:region-before extent="3.5cm"/>
<fo:region-body margin-top="2cm"/>
<fo:region-after extent="1.5cm"/>
</fo:simple-page-master>
</fo:layout-master-set>
<fo:page-sequence master-reference="simple">
<fo:static-content flow-name="xsl-region-before">
<fo:block text-align="left" space-after="10pt"
break-after="auto" font-weight="bold"
font-size="12pt" font-family="Arial">
Hurricanes owner feels NHL season is
gone</fo:block>
<fo:block text-align="left" space-after="10pt"
break-after="auto" font-weight="normal"
font-size="12pt" font-family="Arial">
<fo:inline font-weight="bold">The both sides are so greedy!</fo:inline>
<fo:inline>I can't even afford to go see a game!</fo:inline>
</fo:block>
</fo:flow>
</fo:page-sequence>
</fo:root>

Thanks,

Luke
