I am very new to XQuery and have a bit of a rookie question for you.  I
am trying to nest for loops to output HTML but I am getting a syntax
error on the curly brace before the third "for" statement.  Could
someone please tell me what I am doing wrong?  I have posted sample code

for $bk in doc("book.xml")/book
   <title>Hello World</title>
     for $ch in $bk/chapter
        <h2>Chapter {$counter}. {data($ch/title)}</h2>
                  for $sec in $ch/section
                  return $sec/title

Thanks in advance,

John Craft
