Thanks for taking the time to answer, but I'm afraid that I'd tried  
adding namespaces and that didn't work.  Once I've added the correct  
namespace declaration, the following test won't match:

	<xsl:when test="/d:book">

Let alone anything more complicated.  Making the docbook namespace  
the default namespace doesn't help either.

I'm a bit confused that "/book" _does_ match - if it were a namespace  
issue, then I wouldn't expect that to be matching either?
