> Following two templates generates the same results: They do? <xsl:template match="link//llnode" mode="yyy"> <xsl:for-each select="*"> so this is iterating over all elements (of any name) that have a parent llnode and an ancestor link <xsl:template match="link" mode="yyy"> <xsl:for-each select="*//llnode"> this is iterating over all elements with name llnode that are descendents, but not children, of a link element. It is no doubt possible to find a document where these select the same sets of nodes, but in general they will be very different.
