About Stylesheet Contents
Stylesheets are XML documents. They can contain XSLT instructions and non-XSLT elements and nodes. Stylus Studio automatically inserts some XSLT instructions. You can add additional XSLT instructions, HTML markup, and any other XML data you want. This section describes
Contents Provided by Stylus Studio
When Stylus Studio creates a stylesheet, it has the following contents:
Stylus Studio defines one template, which matches the root node. Of course, the two built-in templates are also defined, although they are not explicitly in the stylesheet. For information about these templates, see Using Stylus Studio Default Templates.
When Stylus Studio creates a stylesheet from an HTML file, the template that matches the root node contains all HTML markup that was in the imported file.
Contents You Can Add
You can add to the stylesheet any XSLT instruction that Stylus Studio supports. See XSLT Instructions Quick Reference. You can also add HTML markup and any other XML-formatted data you require.
To obtain the XPath expression that retrieves a particular node in the source document you want to apply the stylesheet to, see Obtaining the XPath for a Node.
