 Could XPath identify markup generated in XSL?
XSL version: 1
Vendor: Microsoft
Vendor URL: http://www.microsoft.com
Upgrade to XSLT 2 not viable
================================

Suppose an XML file ("A") references an XSL file.
That XSL file copies a node-list from another XML file ("B").
Among other things, B contains the element "<that>".
Within the XSL, can I now target <that> for XSLT?

If XSL can't identify/query for markup that it itself generated, are
there alternative approaches to solving this problem?

========= SAMPLE DATA ===========


ENTRY.XML (aka, "A")
{
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
    <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="bind.xsl"?>
    <root/>
}


GUI.XML {aka, "B")
{
	<html>
	    <head>
	        <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" type="text/css"
/>  		</head>

	    <frameset rows="50,*">
	        <frame name="header" src="img/hdr.jpg" />
	        <frame name="body"><app/></frame>
              <!--               ^^^^^      -->
	    </frameset>
	</html>
}


BIND.XSL
{
	<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
	<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
		<xsl:template match="/">
	        <xsl:copy-of select="document('gui.xml')" />
	        <xsl:apply-templates />
		</xsl:template>


          <!-- THE APP ELEMENT (BELOW) WAS JUST
                COPIED FROM THE ABOVE "COPY-OF" -->

	    <xsl:template match="//app">
	        <xsl:copy-of select="document('app.aspx)" />
	    </xsl:template>
	</xsl:stylesheet>
}
