in reply to Converting very nested XHTML to XML

Not knowing what your original XHTML looks like, I can only provide a general XSLT. In the following, I assume each row in a table either contains a table or a td which is the name (your tags may vary). This allows xsl:apply-templates to recursively call the table template.

<xsl:template match="table"> <node> <xsl:for-each select="tr"> <xsl:apply-templates /> </xsl:for-each> </node> </xsl:template> <xsl:template match="td"> <name><xsl:value-of select="." /></name> </xsl:template>

Here's a more complete example.

    The actual html is here, the trouble Im having is that the relationships between the <node> and the following <node> is indicated by the number of images preceeding the TD containing the node name. I guess I need to learn more xslt better because I dont know how to write a rule for that at the moment..
