Yes, but it's not a loop. You select a set of nodes and then process them in document order. > But technically <xsl:apply-templates> seems to be doing the same job. > can some one advice me as to when exactly do we make use of > <xsl:apply-templates> and when <xsl:for-each> is best used?? I suppose it's a matter of taste, but if you're a beginner, I'd suggest you use xsl:apply-template with templates to first fully understand how XSLT processing works. Then, when you're comfortable with it, you'll probably understand yourself when xsl:for-each makes your life easier and when to stick with xsl:apply-templates.
