xsl same template different mode
Hi Matt,

>    <xsl:copy><xsl:apply-templates select="node()|@*" mode="**THE VALUE OF

> <xsl:template match="@Action" mode="modify | delete">
>    <xsl:choose>
>      <if>mode = modify<xsl:attribute name="Action">M</xsl:attribute></if>
>      <else><xsl:attribute name="Action">D</xsl:attribute></else>
>    </xsl:choose>
> </xsl:template>

No. If you want to do the same thing in both contexts, but keep track
of what the context is, you're better off using a $mode parameter to
pass the context around:

<xsl:template match="node()|@*">
  <xsl:param name="mode" />
    <xsl:apply-templates select="node()|@*">
      <xsl:with-param name="mode" select="$mode" />

<xsl:template match="@Action">
  <xsl:param name="mode" />
  <xsl:attribute name="Action">
      <xsl:when test="$mode = 'modify'">M</xsl:when>

I hope that helps,
