xsl:template having both name and match
Hello, I have a question about xsl:template .. It is said in XSLT 2.0 spec that.. "If an xsl:template element has a name attribute, it may, but need not, also have a match attribute. The match, mode and priority attributes on an xsl:template element have no effect when the template is invoked by an xsl:call-template instruction. Similarly, the name attribute on an xsl:template element has no effect when the template is invoked by an xsl:apply-templates instruction." I think this is also true in case of XSLT 1.0 .. This means that we can write a xsl:template having *both* name and match attributes.. I want to know in which circumstances such a template definition is useful.. Can somebody please provide an example where this has real practical use..? Till now I have'nt felt such a need.. I always create xsl:template with name and match attributes as 2 seperate templates, and never in a single template.. I want to know the practical use when both name and match attributes on xsl:template would be required.. Regards, Mukul __________________________________ Celebrate Yahoo!'s 10th Birthday! Yahoo!
