RE: [xsl] template match for subelement throughout tree

A match="para" will match all para elements in your XML document, unless overridden by a more specific template match.  The // in match="//para" is irrelevant as far as I am aware.  Normally you only use // in the select="//para" situation.

If you'd like to send your entire XSLT and a sample XML, I'll have a quick look at it.

Thanks, Ken. I thought using "//para" matched ALL occurrences in the doc?
Since I don't even understand what "table[type!='3']/tr/*" does(!!!), I'm
pretty sure I didn't use it!

My structure's pretty simplified at this point, using mostly recursive
templates to apply styles to sublements like <para> and <em>, just don't see
why this itty bitty template doesn't like me.

The location of the template only matters if there are multiple templates
that match the node.  Could that be the case?  Maybe something like a match
on "table[type!='3']/tr/*" in your stylesheet as well?  

There is a precedence amongst the templates, most specific to least and then
from the bottom of the stylesheet to the top, but I've never fully
understood what determines "most specific", nor trusted the implementation
of this across XSLT processors.

I'm trying to apply this very simple template:

	<xsl:template match="para">
	<p><xsl:apply-templates/></p>
	</xsl:template>

I have an html structure with an <xsl:apply-templates/> in the body, then I
apply other templates to create 3 tables after that. The <para> template
works within the last table structure but doesn't affect the entire doc...I
would like ALL <para> elements to be effected.

I tried "//para" but clearly am missing something...I though location of the
template didn't matter...just the match node?

Sorry, new at this...

Thanks, Kathy
