I run into a compilation error while using this stylesheet..

  <xsl:template match="(/)">

The same repeats if the pattern were (/*), or, (child::*)
My question is:Why are these considered as invalid Patterns in XSLT ?


It says invalid XSLT pattern.  XTSE0340: XSLT Pattern syntax error at
char 0 in {(/}:
    Unexpected token in pattern, found "("

Shift to the left, shift to the right!
Pop up, push down, byte, byte, byte!
