RE: XSL selection of apply templates
<xsl:apply-templates> selects a set of nodes to process. For each of these nodes, the system searches for a template rule that matches the node. If there is more than one, it chooses the one with highest priority and precedence. Sorry if this is a very short explanation but you will find a longer one in my book....
