If you want the same substitution for two different elements then you
can either write:

<xsl:template match="x | y">

or, if one version is not quite the same as the other give one
template a name:

<xsl:template match="x" name="common">
  <!-- matches x's, and can also be called from another template by
name -->

<xsl:template match="y">
   ... this bit only for y's
   <xsl:call-template name="common" />
      <!-- here its the same as an 'x' -->
   ... more stuff for just y's

Your element names do not look right either.  Apart from the fact that
all names beginning with xml (in any mix of case) are reserved, you
need to read about either patterns or namespaces or both - I'm not
sure which.
