Well, sure, but if you produce output with two element children of the root node -- two document nodes -- that's not well formed, so it's not XML anymore.

The advantage of matching the > root element is that there might not be any children. He did specify that it there was guaranteed to be at least one child, but yes. The first match I gave is a match on the document node; / is the root node, /* is the document node, at least per XPath 2 terminology. XPath 1 is of course using different terminology. :) > I think you'll need to write your fixed content in the copy - and don't > forget to process the attributes before you write any children > > <!-- match the first element child of the root node --> > <xsl:template match="/*"> > <!-- but don't lose the former first element child of the root node --> > <xsl:copy> > <xsl:apply-templates select="@*"/> > <element> Your fixed content goes here as literal result elements > </element> > <xsl:apply-templates select="node()"/> > </xsl:copy> > > </xsl:template> Wheras that ought to work, because it's making sure everything stays in the document node. -- Graydon
