Convert invoice XML data to flat CSV format via XSLT

As a novice XSLT, I'm struggling to read docs, and interpret results to resolve this query, hence the question. Given the following XML data, I want to output each invoice on a separate line, but with the contents of all the address info included. All of the <PHONE_NUMBER> relative to the account are also to be repeated on each invoice record. Could someone help in providing an XSLT solution.

<FILE>
  <LETTER>
    <RUN_DATE>01_04_2004</RUN_DATE>
    <ADDRESS >
      <FLAT_NO>Flat 1A</FLAT_NO>
      <STREET_NO> </STREET_NO>
      <STREET_NAME>Skipworth Road</STREET_NAME>
      <AREA>Coventry</AREA>
      <POST_CODE>CV6 8HT</POST_CODE>
    </ADDRESS>
    <INVOICE_ADDRESS>
      <FLAT_NO>Flat 1A</FLAT_NO>
      <STREET_NO></STREET_NO>
      <STREET_NAME>Skipworth Road</STREET_NAME>
      <AREA>Coventry</AREA>
      <POSTCODE>CV6 8HT</POSTCODE>
    </INVOICE_ADDRESS>
    <ACCOUNT>
      <ACCOUNT_NO>C11111</ACCOUNT_NO>
      <TITLE>MR</TITLE>
      <NAME1>John</NAME1>
      <NAME2>Dempsey</NAME2>
     </ACCOUNT>
    <PHONE_NUMBER>02476222222</PHONE_NUMBER>
    <PHONE_NUMBER>07801651711</PHONE_NUMBER>
    <ARREARS>
      <LAST_PAYMENT_DATE></LAST_PAYMENT_DATE>
      <LAST_PAYMENT_AMOUNT>   0.00</LAST_PAYMENT_AMOUNT>
      <ACCOUNT_BALANCE>      171.74</ACCOUNT_BALANCE>
    </ARREARS>
    <INVOICES>
      <INVOICE>
        <INVOICE_NUMBER>P0001</INVOICE_NUMBER>
        <INVOICE_DATE>01_04_2004</INVOICE_DATE>
        <INVOICE_AMOUNT>20.34</INVOICE_AMOUNT>
      </INVOICE>
    </INVOICES>
    <INVOICES>
      <INVOICE>
        <INVOICE_NUMBER>P0002</INVOICE_NUMBER>
        <INVOICE_DATE>2004_01_15</INVOICE_DATE>
        <INVOICE_AMOUNT>5.18</INVOICE_AMOUNT>
      </INVOICE>
    </INVOICES>

The output would look something like:
