Laurens AarnoudseSubject: Copying XML as is with one change, how can I insert an action into the copy procedure?

I wanted to copy an xml file entirely with one change: one element called <enclosure> should become <image>. This was more difficult to achieve than I expected.

I tried to use a if-then construction to copy everything except when the element <enclosure> has been encounted. In that case it selects an attribute of that element and tries to put that in between <image> tags. This is where I get the error "cannot write an attribute when there is no open start tag". I suspect something goes wrong when the xslt parses through all the elements.

<xsl:template match="*">
<xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()"/>
<xsl:template match="@*|text()|comment()|processing-instruction()">
<xsl:when test="contains(name(), 'url')">
<xsl:value-of select="."/>

<xsl:copy-of select="."/>
