Here are the examples for my xml and xsl files

XML:

<dataroot>
<qryDistrict>
<State>AR</State>
<District>Cornell SD</District>
<Value>300</Value>
<Schools>15</Schools>
<Teachers>35</Teachers>
<Students>1,500</Students>
</qryDistrict>
<qryDistrict>
<State>AR</State>
<District>Davis SD</District>
<Value>0</Value>
<Schools>0</Schools>
<Teachers>0</Teachers>
<Students>0</Students>
</qryDistrict>
</dataroot>

XSL:

<xsl:for-each select="$pNodes">
      <xsl:sort select="*[local-name() = $pSortByState]" data-type="text" order="ascending"/>
      <xsl:sort select="*[local-name() = $pSortBy]" data-type="{$pType}" order="{$pDirection}"/>
      <TR>
           <TD ALIGN="left">
            <A href="AEPNonPartDistricts.html?state={State}"><xsl:value-of select="State"/></A>
           </TD>
           <TD ALIGN="left">
            <A href="AEPbySchool.html?district={District}&amp;state={State}"><xsl:value-of select="District"/></A>
           </TD>
           <TD ALIGN="right">$<xsl:value-of select="format-number(Value, '###,###,###,##0')"/></TD>
           <TD ALIGN="right"><xsl:value-of select="format-number(Schools , '###,###,###,##0')"/></TD>
           <TD ALIGN="right"><xsl:value-of select="format-number(Teachers , '###,###,###,##0')"/></TD>
           <TD ALIGN="right"><xsl:value-of select="format-number(Students , '###,###,###,##0')"/></TD>

Assuming you haven't already declared an attribute style for the td element then you could try the following:

...........
<xsl:template match="td">
    <td>
        <xsl:if test=". = 0">
            <xsl:attribute name="style">background-color: #C0C0C0;</xsl:attribute>
        </xsl:if>
        <xsl:apply-templates select="@*|*" />
    </td>
</xsl:template>
.............

Exactly where am I placing this code? I tried it in several different places -- no luck!

Thanks for your info Conor; however, I resolved it in a different manner.

For other's information, the solution I used is as follows:

<TD ALIGN="right">
    <xsl:if test="Value = 0">
        <xsl:attribute name="style">background-color:#EEEEEE;</xsl:attribute>
    </xsl:if>
    <xsl:value-of select="format-number(Value , '###,###,###,##0')"/>
</TD>
<TD ALIGN="right">
    <xsl:if test="Schools = 0">
        <xsl:attribute name="style">background-color:#EEEEEE;</xsl:attribute>
    </xsl:if>
    <xsl:value-of select="format-number(Schools , '###,###,###,##0')"/>
</TD>
<TD ALIGN="right">
    <xsl:if test="Teachers = 0">
        <xsl:attribute name="style">background-color:#EEEEEE;</xsl:attribute>
    </xsl:if>
    <xsl:value-of select="format-number(Teachers , '###,###,###,##0')"/>
</TD>
<TD ALIGN="right">
    <xsl:if test="Students = 0">
        <xsl:attribute name="style">background-color:#EEEEEE;</xsl:attribute>
    </xsl:if>
    <xsl:value-of select="format-number(Students , '###,###,###,##0')"/>
</TD>
