Well, of course in the first place it all depends on where the svn keywords
are sitting in your original document(s) - you can't have more distinct
revision dates in your output than you have in your source. So, if your
source is just one file, then it doesn't make much sense.

If your source is in multiple files, you should put a keyword in each of
those. Let's say you put it in article/articleinfo/releaseinfo, you could
add the keyword "closest" to the output document by adding something like
this to your customization layer:

<xsl:template name="user.footer.navigation">
  <p class="revisiondate">
    <xsl:value-of select="ancestor::releaseinfo[1]"/>
