Decoding values From within XSL

I have the following (sample) XML:

<Customers>
  <Name>John Doe</Name>
  <CityCode>NYC</CityCode>
  <Name>Alan Smith</Name>
  <CityCode>LAN</CityCode>
  ...
</Customers>

And want (if possible from within the transforming XSL) to decode the value of <CityCode> from the following XML:

<Cities>
  <CityCode>NYC<Name>New York</Name></CityCode>
  <CityCode>LAN<Name>Los Angeles</Name></CityCode>
</Cities>

I'm at my wits end on how to do this. Thanks

First of all, your pb would be easier to resolve if you can reformulate your Xml file, wrapping customers en cities into elements. Note also that City's Name is not a child of CityCode but of City:

<Customers>
 <Customer>
  <Name>John Doe</Name>
  <CityCode>NYC</CityCode>
 </Customer>
 <Customer>
  <Name>Alan Smith</Name>
  <CityCode>LAN</CityCode>
 </Customer>
</Customers>

<Cities>
 <City>
  <CityCode>NYC</CityCode><Name>New York</Name>
 </City>
 <City>
  <CityCode>LAN</CityCode><Name>Los Angeles</Name>
 </City>
</Cities>

Then Xsl file could be simple:

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
         version="1.0" >

<xsl:output method="html"/>

<xsl:template match="*">
 <xsl:apply-templates/>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="/">
<table border="1">
 <tr><th>Name</th><th>CityCode</th><th>CityName</th></tr>
 <xsl:apply-templates/>
</table>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="Customer">
 <tr>
  <td><xsl:value-of select="Name"/></td>
  <td><xsl:value-of select="CityCode"/></td>
  <td><xsl:value-of select="//City[CityCode=current()/CityCode]/Name"/></td>
 </tr>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="City">
</xsl:template>

</xsl:stylesheet>
