Hi Carmelo,

your error message "visit has an illegal attribute: {1}" shows, that you
didn't open a new element before calling this template. It has to be
something similar to the following example:

<xsl:template match="fo">
    <xsl:element name="fo">
        <xsl:call-template name="buildChildrenTree"/>

<xsl:template name = "buildChildrenTree">
    <xsl:attribute name = "visit">yes</xsl:attribute>

As Jarno already said, you are not manipulating the input-tree!! You are
creating a completely new output-tree.
