xsl apply template select
Mike,
I think the bug is in the code he has shown..

>>><xsl:template select="kcm">
>>>	<xsl:message>template hits</xsl:message>
>>>	<!-- This message is never seen -->
>>>  </xsl:template>

Sometimes when you can't find a bug, it's because you're looking in the
wrong place.

What makes you so sure your bug isn't in the bits of code you haven't shown
us?
