It is a common need to infer structure where there is none.  Pages 256-258 
of the Ninth Edition of my book describes inferring a nesting of list items 
from a flat collection of list items.

You are, of course, right Rob, thank you for pointing that out.  Re-running 
my old stylesheet I can now see the error message that I overlooked before 
because I was focusing on the markup:

T:\ftemp>saxon thushara.xml thushara.xsl
Unexpected: 'URLADR'
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
       <URLDESC xml:lang="en">Homepage of aaa AS</URLDESC>
       <URLDESC xml:lang="no">Homepage of aaa AS NO</URLDESC>
       <URLDESC xml:lang="se">Homepage of aaa AS SE</URLDESC>
       <URLDESC xml:lang="en">Demo of aaabbb.com</URLDESC>
       <URLDESC xml:lang="no">Demo of aaabbb.com NO</URLDESC>

Perhaps I should make my error messages stand out more!

Thanks again for the clarification.
