I agree. <xsl:template match="node()" .. or say, xsl:value-of select=""node()/.. etc can never select a document node with pattern, node() (as you rightly said, that in these cases, node() is an abbreviation for, child::node()). But the test ". instance of node()" returns true for document node, because document node is a kind of node. Thanks, for the clarification. -- Regards, Mukul Gandhi
