Default Determining which of 2 nodes in this node

I have 2 XML documents which differ by only a single node. In one of the documents, I have a <Complete> node within a <Student> node. In the other document, I have a <Score> node within the Student one. I currently have a for-each tag to loop through all the Student node, but I need to figure out how to use the xsl:if tag to determine whether the Student node contains a Score node or a Complete one.
I'm sure it's probably something very simple, but I can't figure out how to check for a specific node name.

Can someone please help me?

Chris

Here is a snippet of each document:
Code:
<Report>
    <Module Name="modName">
        <Student>
            <Name>Doe, John</Name>
            <Score>87</Score>
        </Student>
...
...
</Report>
And the other document
Code:
<Report>
    <Module Name="modName">
        <Student>
            <Name>Doe, John</Name>
            <Complete>True</Complete>
        </Student>
    </Module>
...
...
</Report>
Basically, my question is: how do I code the xsl:if tag to check for the Complete or the Score tag?

Chris

Hi Chris,

<xsl:choose> and <xsl:when>'s might be what you are looking for

<xsl:choose>
  <xsl:when test="Score">

  </xsl:when>
  <xsl:when test="Complete">

  </xsl:when>
  <xsl:otherwise>

  </xsl:otherwise>
</xsl:choose>
