So I do have something very simple like <xsl:template match="/"> (...) <xsl:apply-templates select="abcd:Gathering"/> (...) <xsl:template> <xsl:template match="LongitudeDecimal"> <!-- do nothing --> </xsl:template> There are no children to LongitudeDecimal, so I would not have to process them. But what I still don't understand is the rest of it: how do I apply the LongitudeDecimal-template to Gathering, so that the "empty" template rule overrules the output I get from just calling the Gathering node? -----Original Message----- From: David Carlisle [mailto:davidc@xxxxxxxxx] Sent: Dienstag, 2.
