RE: a node child
<xsl:if test="childnodename">...</xsl:if> <xsl:if test="@attributename">...</xsl:if> If in the test statement you pass a name of a child or attribute it returns true if the child exists, otherwise it returns false. To match all the persons with a "tel" child you can try: <xsl:apply-templates select="person[tel]"/> There is a deatailed explanation about this in any XSLT beginer's guide.
