Re: Aborting XSL processing during a run....
You wish to stop processing if a particular attribute is not present? I think you'd have to stop processing before you begin, really, thus: <xsl:template match="/"> <xsl:if test="someNode[@someAttribute]"> <xsl:apply-templates/> </xsl:if> </xsl:template> As Andrew Welch pointed out (message arrived while I wrote this, in fact), if you want to process part of the thing and then stop at the missing attribute, you're out of luck (I think).
