Creating a Template That Matches the book Element

This topic is part of a sequence that starts with Creating a New Sample Stylesheet.

The template that matches the root node includes an xsl:apply-templates instruction that selects book nodes for processing.

To define the template that matches the book element:
1. In the XSLT editor source document tree pane, expand the bookstore element.
2. Double-click the book element.

Stylus Studio creates a template that matches the book element. The new template is near the end of the stylesheet and has the form <xsl:template match="book">. In the tree pane, the yellow check next to the book element indicates that there is a template that matches this element.

3. In the XSLT editor pane, add the following instructions to the new template's body:
  <td><xsl:apply-templates select="title"/></td> 
  <td><xsl:apply-templates select="author"/></td> 
  <td align="right">  
  <xsl:apply-templates select="price"/>
