    resolved [RESOLVED] XML: Output HTML Menu

    i have an xml file 'structure', and an xsl file 'style'. I put the files together with saxon-b to generate an output html file.
    basically, what is being output at the moment on the HTML file is:

    CDs
    DVDs
    Games
    Ipods

    These two categories have generated html links to cds.html and dvds.html, etc (for displaying sub-categories)

    The problem is that cds.html displays 'Metal' (which is corrent), but also dvds.html , games.html and ipods.html displays the same subcategories from the cds.html page

    in the code for generating the menus, i use:
    //department/cd
    so im guessing this is the problem? (as im bypassing dvd, games, ipods elements) but Im assuming i need to assign a variable or something.
    maybe department/$variable or another variable somewhere else to check where the current page is and to gather the right data depending on what the user clicked. eg if i clicked games, i want the games sub-category to show. so the department link would need to be //department/games instead.

    Any help apprechiated.
    Im new to XML.

    Ive posted the code so you can have a closer look, its pretty simple to understand i hope.
