quote:Alright, here we go:
the only thing you needed to amend in the stylesheet provided for you by Alain is to add a check whether this is a first pagebreak processed, and if yes - add there one more <div> with all the preceding elements, e.g. using <xsl:if>:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
    <xsl:template match="div">
        <div class="article-content-container">
            <xsl:for-each select="pagebreak">
                <xsl:if test="position()=1">
                    <div class="page-content-container">
                        <xsl:copy-of select="preceding-sibling::*"/>
                <xsl:copy-of select="."/>
                <xsl:variable name="nbpg" select="position()"/>
                <div class="page-content-container">
                    <xsl:copy-of select="following-sibling::*[name()!='pagebreak' and count(preceding-sibling::pagebreak)=$nbpg]"/>

Thanks for the solutions Martin and Volder. I ended up using Volder's as it iplemented in my existing XSLT without fuss. I tried Martins too, but I couldn't get it to work in my design =/

XSLT is really giving me a hard time! I can't seem to grasp the logic.
