I have a snippet of XSL code. And the code is to tranform a XML document to HTML. I have problem to figure out what this XSL snippet exactly does. I do "not" need to know those HTML <tbody>, <tr>, <td>, style sheet stuff.

What I can understand is that the HTML table created will have two columns. The first column is labeled "In fulfillment of". I am lost when I read the XSL code for the second column to be created. I can see that the code needs to read the n1:inFulfillmentOf/n1 : order/n1:id and n1:inFulfillmentOf/n1 : order/n1:code and n1:inFulfillmentOf/n1 : order/n1:priorityCode.

and I also know that   is HTML non-break space; but I do not know what is going to look like in HTML. Would someone help me? Thank you.

It isn't possible to say "exactly" what that XSLT template does, because it calls some other templates which you haven't shown.

As for the second column in the HTML table generated from that XSLT, it's going to contain a lot of data. But if it were me, I would just run it and then try to understand the output.
