So if I have five in the list, and I want all of the first four that are present in the config file to be applied first, and the last (article) only, well, last (because it is the fallback)? I use the same syntax? Actually, the optional types only get applied from this template if they do not contain an "inherit-from" attribute. Does that change how you'd code it? Here's what you had: <xsl:apply-templates select="$style-biblio/(for $t in ('article-newspaper','article') return cs:reftype[@name=$t])/cs:*"> ... in practice you'd want to put the list into a variable or pull it from a config file or something. ..... and what would, say, the variable actually look like?
