Hello Ira,

<xsl:if test="image_large">

do some processing


will do the trick, the default test is if its true or false....of course you
must have your path correct ( so if the current node is not image_large...u
have to adjust the path )

hehe, use shorthand with curly brackets and literally output the align
like so

<img src="{img_large}" width="{@width}" height="{@height}" align="right"/>

much more readable, no ?
