Dear Roelof,

What I try to achieve is to break a big xslt file into pieces.

So What I want to achieve is that the something matches to root.

Could be. Or maybe not. Assuming it's an XML source document (not an
XSLT stylesheet) that you want to break into pieces, there are many ways you might do it, and matching on the root may or may not be involved.

Then I need a piece which contains the piece which holds the head
section of the html file.

Sure ... if you're generating more than one HTML result, you will want each one of them to have a head element.

But appearently Im on the wrong track.

Again, I'm not sure you're on the wrong track.

It's just that, as some recent responses on the list may have suggested to you, you're trying to do too much at once.

It's as if you said to us "I need to cook a four-course gourmet meal, and for dessert I want to serve tiramisu", but it is clear from your technique that you haven't learned how to beat an egg.

This is why you have heard us suggest you make the effort to study XSLT fundamentals. Only when you have practiced the basics, like beating eggs and chopping vegetables, will you be able to cook a four-course meal (with or without tiramisu).

If someone can point me to the right track im a very happy men.

The track has already been pointed to: it's right in front of you. Study the basics. Only if you do that will we be able to help you.
