I maybe phrased that wrong, it love it when it works :-) and hate it
when it dont(same as any other language).

I have only been developing with XSLT for  a few weeks but Im
impressed already with its flexibility, so give another chance ;-).

I'll compose a better explanation of my problem in the hope that
someone can help

Regards
Paul
