1. In this XSL we are specifically searching for "ChamferedRectangle1"

need a way of searching only for "ChamferedRectangle" without "1"

use the XPath function starts-with()

2. After first "template match" we are inside the node set, so can't we
do everything with in that, rather than having multiple matches..???

Exactly. You just have multiple matches and the processor will decide which one matches your input best. But you can do a lot inside it, using xsl:for-each, xsl:copy-of, xsl:value-of, xsl:choose etc. Lookup any manual to find out what instructions are valid. At there's a basic tutorial on XSLT.
