This is a procedural do-this-then-that way of looking at XSLT.

However, XSLT stylesheets can be evaluated in any order, as long as the
end result meets the spec. XSLT is not a first-this-then-that language.

In addition, the XSLT stylesheet is read into memory and parsed long
before it's executed, so finding an end tag just marks the boundary of a
node in a tree.

Hope this helps.
