RE: Output as per the filter is missing

Not sure I entirely understand the question. But the context (e.g the context node) on return from apply-templates is exactly the same as the context before. Any instruction (such as xsl:value-of or xsl:for-each) that appears after the apply-templates will give exactly the same result as if it appeared before it. > > What I understand by using <xsl:apply-template> means > filtering the nodes in XML document four output? Not really filtering. Apply-templates selects a set of nodes (by default, the children of the current node), and for each of them, it finds the best matching template rule, and executes that template rule with the selected node as the current node. Of course, if you have a template rule that does nothing, then you have effectively filtered out the nodes that it matches. Michael Kay http://www.saxonica.com/
