Hi Osman,

Always use xsl:apply-templates, unless you see that this requires you to create a new mode that will be used once only, in which case you can use xsl:for-each instead as "syntax sugar".

This is my new favorite phrase of the week.. "syntax sugar"... I love it!!! Wendell, where do you come up with these things??? :)

WP's brain - Where Art, Poetry, and Science somehow find a way to agree upon there differences and simply play nice with each other for a change.

Cheers! :)


Cheers, Wendell
