Thanks Tony for your suggestion.

But i encountered an error when i try to use <xsl:for-each
select="current-group()">.

The error message which i receive is 
      javax.xml.transform.TransformerException: Could not find function:
current-group

The cocoon stacktrace is as follows

Unable to get transformer handler for
file:///home/anandh/Desktop/cocoon/cocoon-2.1.11/build/webapp/prd-doc/doc2ci.xsl
context://prd-doc/sitemap.xmap - 115:46	<map:serialize type="fo2pdf">
context://prd-doc/sitemap.xmap - 114:49	<map:transform>
context://prd-doc/sitemap.xmap - 113:45	<map:generate>
context://sitemap.xmap - 1034:92	<map:mount>


The namespace which i used is as follows

<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0" xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format"
xmlns:java="http://xml.apache.org/xslt/java" exclude-result-prefixes="java"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">

Let me know if i am missing anything else.



Regards

Anandh
