Oh thanks it worked !

Theres one more problem I have. The output of my present transformation is of the form

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<PrimeConcept id="10180">
     <SubConcept id="10298" name="Toyota"/>
However I want the output in the form

<PrimeConcept id='10180'>Car</PrimeConcept>
 <SubConcept id='10298'>Toyota</SubConcept>

I am not sure how you can create the element <SubConcepts> from within the <PrimeConcept> template match. My present code is

<xsl:template match="/">
<PrimeConcept><xsl:apply-templates select="Top/TopNode" mode="top"/></PrimeConcept>

<xsl:template match="TopNode" mode="top">
<xsl:if test="@name = $prime"> <!--e.g. resolves to 'Car'>
<xsl:attribute name="id"><xsl:value-of select="@id"/></xsl:attribute>
<xsl:element name="PrimeName"><xsl:value-of select="@name"/></xsl:element><!-- e.g. Car-->
<xsl:for-each select="following-sibling::TopNode[@name = $constraint] | preceding-sibling::TopNode[@name=$constraint]"> <!--e.g. resolves to 'Toyota'> <xsl:element name="SubConcepts"> <xsl:element name="SubConcept">
<xsl:attribute name="id"><xsl:value-of select="@id"/></xsl:attribute>
<xsl:attribute name="name"><xsl:value-of select="@name"/></xsl:attribute>
</xsl:if> </xsl:template>


So how can I create the element <SubConcepts> below <Top> and not <PrimeConcept> ?

You hardly posted enough information to guess an answer, but

<xsl:if test="following-sibling::TopNode[@name = $constraint]">

xsl:if is just a boolean test it doesn't change the current node.
If you want to change the current node to that node (if it is there)
change that to

<xsl:for-each test="following-sibling::TopNode[@name = $constraint]">
