Default Problem with JavaScript in XSL

Hi,need some help here... :|

i am working with XML and XSL with little JavaScript inside.In XSL i put some of the XML nodes in <div> tags. There is a simple function as well:

<script language="JavaScript">
function showhide(divID, imgName) {
    if (document.all(divID).style.display == "none") {
        document.all(divID).style.display = "block";
        document.all(imgName).src = "minus.gif";
    } else {
        document.all(divID).style.display = "none";
        document.all(imgName).src = "plus.gif";

So, the problem is there: when i get to <subnode> an error occurs: 'document.all(...).style.display' is null or not an object.

this is the XML:


All three are put in <div> so i can hide or show them and its ok with first and second level - <country> and <rule>.

any ideas???
thanks in advance :)

I don't understand, is this a javascript problem or an xml one? Xml has no concept of a dom document, where is this code running?

I dont know where is the problem too - i suppose it is in JavaScript, but it may be in XSL code.

Here is the XSL problem part:

<img id="imgName" src="plus.gif" OnClick="showhide('divID','imgName')"/>#160;
<div id="divID" style="display:none">
  <TABLE border="1" width="70%">
   <TD align="center"><B>From</B></TD>
   <TD align="center"><B>To</B></TD>
   <TD align="center"><B>Value</B></TD>
   <TD align="center"><B>Percent</B></TD>
   <TD align="center"><B>Base</B></TD> </TR>

But the same code is working fine with parent nodes.
It is on my computer still.

well i fixed it by changing 'document.all' with 'documnet.getElementById' and adding 'generate-id(.)' to the <div> ID,so every node should has unique id. But now there is another problem:
This code is working fine in IE6 but not in Mozilla 1.8a2.

<xsl:for-each select="following-sibling::node()[$count]">
    <xsl:value-of select="@attribute"/>

In Mozilla it is working only like this:
<xsl:for-each select="following-sibling::*">
but i don't need all nodes at once.

So it seems i have to change 'node()[$count]' with something, but what??????
