I see occasionally templates with a matching criteria similar to

<xsl:template match="@*[.....]"/>

and

<xsl:template match="*[.....]"/>

What is the meaning of them?

@* is attribute::* so matches all attributes, * is child::* so matches all elements. The predicate in square brackets then applies a filter.


Can they be used WITHOUT the appended brackets [...]?

Sure.
