Re: For this input element, fire all matching template

Subject: Re: For this input element, fire all matching template rules. Any way to fire multiple template rules for an input element?

Re:  For this input element
Roger,

One way to handle this (and I guess there will be some far more elegant
solutions presented) would be to assign each rule a different priority
(according to the order of reports you want to have, maybe) and then within
each rule at the end insert

<xsl:next-match />

I just recently discovered this xsl element, which I used never before.
