Re:  <xsl:apply-imports/> with select attribute
Hi Micheal,
> What would you want this construct to actually do?

My use case is as follows: Ive got a master template, in which the template
@match="/" contains a <xsl:for-each/> over a collection(). Inside the loop I
would like to call templates from imported stylesheets, that are designed to
handle single documents. Additionally they havent be designed to run together
with other templates, so they contain no @mode attribute on their template

This way the calls to <xsl:apply-templates select="./> (where . is a document
node from the collection) doesnt match the root template of the imported
stylesheet, but the root template of the master stylesheet, which causes a
unwanted loop.

Im just looking for a way to be able to give the imported stylesheets a
higher priority when Im looping to a collection of files.


> apply-imports means "process the current node using the template that would
have matched if this one didn't". It's hard to see what that could mean when
processing a different node, i.e. one that doesn't necessarily match the
current template rule.

>> Hi list,

<xsl:apply-imports select="document($file)/>
