I think possibly the wildcard double slash is confusing it...the double
slash tells it to find scopecontent anywhere in the document; even when
you put it in the middle of a string as you have it here, it's still an
anywhere-in-the-document match (see "Navigating nodes" at ).  If you take out
the double slash, it works fine.  Given that a scopecontent can only
appear in a c0# or in another scopecontent, you may not need that double

I keep getting an ambiguous rule match error here and I am not
understanding how these two statements are not opposites:

<xsl:template match='* [@level="series" or


<xsl:template match='* [not (@level="series" or

            <font size="-1" color="gray">

Thank you,
