Thanks. I know I must have done this at some other point, but I couldn't find the stylesheet in my archives today with this construction. It seems obvious know that you have been kind enough to point it out. Like when you are looking for something like a ring of keys and you can't see that you already have it in your hand.

You can do <xsl:apply-templates select="$doc1/*">, and a template rule that
matches the document element will then be fired. Template rules aren't
specific to a particular document. If you need different rules to process
different documents, use modes.
