xsl match doctype
Hi,

I find it counter-intuitive, but it is best to always put the most generic templates above specific ones. Especially when not using priorities on templates..

HTH,

I have a problem whereby if I include an xhtml doctype declaration in my

html then my xslt templates always match the wildcard.

Ive constructed a simple demonstration of a problem Im having, hoping a sage older hand can tell me where Ive gone wrong.
It includes a simple transform, and two xhtml files which have two minor differences: in the second I include the DOCTYPE declaration, and can thus use the nbsp by name.


If I process them with xalan 2.7 (I had similar problems with msxml, and switched because I hoped xalan might be different) the 'head' and 'body' tags in the second file is always matched by the wildcard template.

java.exe -classpath %CLASSPATH% org.apache.xalan.xslt.Process -IN dummy.html -XSL dummy-clean.xslt

java.exe -classpath %CLASSPATH% org.apache.xalan.xslt.Process -IN dummy2.html -XSL dummy-clean.xslt

Hoping its something stupid (and thus easy to fix)
