Thank you for your reply. I agree with your opinion. 

I found it a
bit difficult to learn what apply-templates means by simply reading the
tutorial online. 

The meaning is much deeper and requires an understanding of
related XSLT elements like templates and XPath and how they 

now reading Beginning XSLT2.0 and I also have your reference books on XSLT2.0
and XPath2.0. 
These books cover concepts in greater detail.

Certain features
of XSLT and XPath like <xsl:if  or string functions such as starts-with('  are
quicker to grasp because they are present in other programming languages.
But certain other features like <xsl:templates are quite different from other
programming languages. The concept is very different and that's why
understanding things from scratch (takes time) but, makes programming more
efficient and productive IMO.

Personally, I find the w3schools
information very useful for looking up
something you one knew but had
forgotten, but weak on explaining concepts
when you're first starting.
