Re: conflicting template rules
Hello, here is a standard excerpt (XSLT recommendation, section 5.5): "It is an error if this leaves more than one matching template rule. An XSLT processor may signal the error; if it does not signal the error, it must recover by choosing, from amongst the matching template rules that are left, the one that occurs last in the stylesheet." So the last one. It is better to use the priority attribute.
