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.

Thanks Mark, I appreciate the kind words -- but I can't claim credit for that one. I'm sure if you Googled it you'd find "syntax sugar" all over the place.

(Of course the logician in me hastens to add that this in itself does not contradict anything you've said. :-)
