When generating the pages, the xsl figures out the general layout of the
page and values of things like the page title, headers. This requires lots
of instances of:

  <xsl:when test='/top/page = "index"'>
    <xsl:text>This is the index page</xsl:text>
  <xsl:when test='/top/page = "somePage"'>
    <xsl:text>This is some other page</xsl:text>
  ... and so on for about 30 pages ...

Well, you can try to leverage the template mechanism.
For example
 <xsl:template match="top">
      <xsl:apply-template select="page" mode="title"/>
      <xsl:apply-template select="page" mode="body"/>

 <xsl:template match="page[.='index']" mode="title">
   <xsl:text>Index page</xsl:text>

 <xsl:template match="page[.='somePage']" mode="title">
   <xsl:text>This is some other page</xsl:text>

I hope you see the pattern and can extend on it.
