  what is the most expression on time execution:
  is <xsl:apply-templates select="/*/doccontent/docbody"/>
  or <xsl:apply-templates select="/*[name()=$racine]/doccontent/docbody"/>

If you are asking which of those will be fastest to execute, then the chance
that it makes any measurable difference is negligible.
A typical stylesheet execution will be doing thousands of operations,
and you are asking the difference between /* and /*[something]
which is just the time to make one filter a node set which contains at most one

The difference between the two expressions is not time, but result.
If $racine is `rubbish' then the first one will give the result it
gave before, but the second one will return no result.
