Sorry this isn't clearer: as 2.4.1 says, the root node is NOT an element node, it is the root of node tree, whose only daughter is the element node for the document element. > Because when you write an XSL StyleSheet for a specific DTD, it could be > easier,much more natural to find the root node if it could be matched by > is name. In the context of modular stylesheets, it sometimes makes sense to distinguish a template for the root from templates for various possible document elements. Another way to think of it is that '/' matches the root, while '/doc' matches the document element, provided it is called 'doc'. Hope this helps, ht -- Henry S.
