XML formatting Question

I have the following code (see end of question), the code is part of a report that generates the results in a word document.

The results are outputted as follows

   Mark Smith             (this is <xsl:value-of select="name" /> in first dataset example)
   
                                i    Country 1       (this is <xsl:value-of select="destination" /> in second dataset example1)
                                ii   Country 2
                               iii   Country 3

  George Burns
                               iv   Country 4                              
                               v    Country 5

The problem I have is that

1) the bullet points and destination start half way across the page I want them to start on the left as below:

George Burns
  iv   Country 4                              
  v    Country 5

2) I want to reset the numbering on each change of <xsl:value-of select="name" />, its continuous at the moment, so the output would be

   Mark Smith             (this is <xsl:value-of select="name" /> in first dataset example)
   
    i    Country 1       (this is <xsl:value-of select="destination" /> in second dataset example1)
    ii   Country 2
    iii  Country 3

  George Burns
    i   Country 4                              
    ii  Country 5

Any help would be much appreciated

Hi halifaxman,

what you could do is the following (two options)

safe the report, open in word, set the continuous numbering to restart numbering in word
safe back as XML and check the difference and implement it

other option
don't use the word auto numbering but give the "bullets" a fix value, organised in your XSLT
That would be something like this
                        <w:p>
                            <w:pPr>
                                <w:listPr>
                                    <w:ilvl w:val="0"/>
                                    <w:ilfo w:val="1"/>
                                    <wx:t wx:val="{position()}." wx:wTabBefore="360" wx:wTabAfter="180"/>
                                    <wx:font wx:val="Times New Roman"/>
                                </w:listPr>
                            </w:pPr>
                            <w:r>
                                <w:t><xsl:value-of select="name" /></w:t>
                            </w:r>
                        </w:p>

I simply have {position()} there, but using format-number you can make that roman, easily


Cheers!
