Hi,
Try this
<xsl:stylesheet version = '1.0' xmlns:xsl='http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform'><xsl:template match="/">
<TABLE BORDER="1">
<TR>
<TH>Author</TH>
<TH>School</TH>
</TR>
<xsl:for-each select="//one">
<TR>
<TD>
<xsl:value-of select="Author"/>
</TD>
<TD>
<xsl:value-of select="School"/>
</TD>
</TR>
</xsl:for-each>
</TABLE>
</xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet
This should get you what you need. From the root level you are looking for <one>which could have zero or more elements in between and then you select author and school for each.
Later,
Hema
