originial post, if you cant see it let me know and I will re-post it.

Thanks for the pointers so far, I will give some of these a try this

> What XSLT Processor do you use?

I didn't use any processor because you (still) haven't posted any input
that could be processed!!!

However now you point it out you don't apply templates to any children
of xforms:instance, so  the template matchiong
won't be used.

It's a general feature of xslt that templates just say what to do _if_
template matching is applied to a matching node, just defining a
template doesn't on its own cause anything to happen, you need to apply
templates to the node (or at least allow the default template for teh
parent node to implictly apply templates to this node).

If you want to apply templates to the  children of xforms:instance
<xsl:copy-of select="child::node()"/>
<xsl:apply-templates mode="copy"/.

You can also almost certainly just write the match attribute as
unless you have other instances of that element elsewhere in the
 document that you need to handle differently.
