Need to link in an XML/XSL page

The page in question is  here:wtc.

The title of each article is currently just a static title. I need to make it a link.

Here is the XML that provids the title:

<titles><title><style face="normal" font="default" size="100%">Frequent binge drinking five to six years after exposure to 9/11: Findings from the World Trade Center Health Registry</style></title></titles>

Open in new window


and here is the XSLT that transforms it for display:

 
<h3><xsl:value-of select="./titles/title/style"/></h3>

Open in new window


Now, I need to make that title a link by bringing together two separate pieces. One, this url:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/

and the ID number from within the specific record's XML to tag on to the end of the URL. Example:

24018914 to make the clickable link as follows:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24018914

The ID number that needs to be tagged onto the URL comes from the XML as follows:

<accession-num><style face="normal" font="default" size="100%">24831753</style></accession-num> (ignore the style. There is nothing I can do about that)

I am attaching a txt record that have a FULL portion of one sample XML record. If someone can please show me the code to make the link work, I would greatly appreciate it.

<h3><a href="http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/{normalize-space(accession-num/style)}"><xsl:value-of select="./titles/title/style"/></a></h3>

From your source it seems the style serves nothing
so you could
<h3><a href="http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/{normalize-space(accession-num)}"><xsl:value-of select="normalize-space(titles/title)"/></a></h3>

have not checked your XSLT but assume this all happens in a "record" template
you have a direct path, so no need to repeat the context node (you can drop the '.' as well)
