Only first in document order  <xsl:when> whose @test attribute
evaluates to true is selected for processing. If there isn't such,
then the <xsl:otherwise> (if specified) is selected for processing.

BTW, why don't you read a good book on XSLT? This would save a lot of
time, at least for the very basic questions like the ones you have
submitted in the last day or so.
