Re:  Can an xsl file know it's own name dynamically?

I ended up with the following with the following using the FunctX XSLT
Function Library which works fine with xproc via calabash running
things thus far.

I suppose a means of putting this code in an included file and getting
the name of the file doing the including in the output rather than the
included file name over and over is not possible?

  <xsl:template match="processing">
      <xsl:element name="widget">
        <xsl:attribute name="name"
        <xsl:attribute name="startExecutionTime"

<xsl:template match="*">
      <xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>

Thanks Much
