Hi Joren,

I don't know why you would use a named template without params here,
but anyway, instead of checking the attributes in an xsl:choose construct,
you could simply test on all attributes: 

<xsl:template ...>
  <xsl:apply-templates select="@*"/>

<xsl:template match="@mode | @name"/>  <!-- skip these: not used for XPath -->

<xsl:template match="@*">
  <li><xsl:value-of select="."/></li>

Sorry if this is of no help to you, I have no idea how the rest of your stylesheet
is organized (eg. from where are you calling the "generateUsedXpathQueries" 

I don't think there's a way to check if an attribute value is an XPath expression
or not, because it could be anything, even a single word like "elemname"

BTW. some time ago I made an xsl-to-html stylesheet, too:
you can use this, or portions of it, if you want

Best regards
Anton Triest
