I got this solution from other friend but i did not understand compeltely.

your friend is using the clip of subquestion
and a key set for the following nodes

your data are used in word excel table

You must your data in the xml file to examine better

there maybe some differences you fall on the can evaluate the

But differences on content is bad

For example, changing the values ​​but in
(Subquestion1) in hello

already breaks down the xsl
