RE: Tags to HTML page
I think i understand, but if you have <xsl:template match="h3"> (...) <h3><xsl:apply-templates/></h3> (...) </xsl:template> aplyed to <root> <h3> <h3> (...) </h3> </h3> </root> doesn't that falls in a kind of loop? Or does the apply-templates only apply to the childrens of the node being processed?

By writing xsl:apply-templates, I am saying "process > whatever you find inside the h3 element according to the rules defined for > that kind of content". For example, if there is an <a> element inside the > <h3>, then it will process that according to the rules for handling <a> > elements.
