You will most likely get better help from mulberrytech's XSL list.

AS for some hints, your content is in a namespace. You need to account  
for this when you 'match' it in your XSL.

This is in no namespace. In other words, you are not targeting your  
source XML.

Though I tend to almost always prefer xsl:apply-templates over xsl:for- 
each, either way you need to understand what you want to 'loop' over.  
How many 'a' elements exist at the path you specify?

You should probably go through soem tutorials, get Michael Kay's XSL  
book for XSL 1.0 - if you really want/need to use XSL/XPath 1.0. You  
would be better off starting with XSL/XPath 2.0, especially since you  
are using java on the server.
