I've just noticed you can't have a predicate on the root matching template: <xsl:template match="/[some condition]"/> I noticed because I have two root matching templates, one for testing and one for production, and I wanted an easy way to switch between them eg: <xsl:template match="/[false()]"> or say using a parameter: <xsl:template match="/[$testing]"> The processors (Saxon 6.5.4, 8.5b, msxml 3 and 4) all complain about the unexpected token '[', apparently not realising this is the root matching template and not a step in a pattern. Is it wrong to use multiple root matching templates in this way?
