 One of your random xml is "Keep it Simle"

rxNum is always fixed digits, say 10. but we may receive sometime 10 or less that 10 digits say
1234567890 or sometime just 2 digitst say "23"
if we get 23. we need to pad rxNum to 0000000023
<Rx rxNum="0000000023">
if we get say 78587 we need to pad
<Rx rxNum="0000078587">

Something like:

<xsl:template match="Rx">
		<xsl:apply-templates select="@*" />

<xsl:template match="@rxNum[string-length() &lt; 10]">
	<xsl:attribute name="rxNum">

<xsl:template match="@rxNum"><xsl:copy-of select="."/></xsl:template>

> but sometimes we may just get <Rx rxNum="23"/>
What condition is linked to "sometimes"?
