You have a nested template inside a template, that is not allowed.
You should place your templates next to each other.

Why did you not continue in the other question by the way?

hmm, I take that back, the XSLT is not valid... The xsl:templates are nested (not allowed) and the <span> is not terminated.

I made a possible fix for your stylesheet,

Can you please post a source XML and tell us what you exactly need because a lot of things will possibly gor wrong in this stylesheet
and I am not at all sure that a form is allowed inside a table row
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
    <xsl:output method="html" omit-xml-declaration="yes"/>
    
    <xsl:param name="Number" select="item"/>
    <xsl:variable name="Count"><xsl:value-of select="item"/></xsl:variable>
    
    <xsl:template match="/">
        <xsl:call-template name="render"/>
    </xsl:template>
    
        <xsl:template name="render">
            
            
            <div class="hide" id="comment">
                <div style="height:155px; overflow:auto; margin-bottom: 10px;">
                    <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" class="formTbl">
                        <tr>
                            <td colspan="2"><label><strong>Update</strong><span class="txtLarge"><strong>&#160;</strong></span></label></td>
                        </tr>
                        <tr>

                            <td colspan="2"><textarea id="commentText" name="" cols="67" rows="6">comment</textarea>     </td>

Can you please phrase what you are trying to do?
You have an HTML, and now you want to construct the same HTML from an XML using XSLT?
Or is your question a bit confusing and do you mean that you want to generate what is in teh html, biut then in PDF using XSL-FO?

It is hard to work on this without
- source XML
- a clear indication of what the question exactly is
