<list> is <xyz> which has a child of <PPP>".
But in my example I've inadvertently set up the template
to match on <xyz>.
Nevertheless, the template with a mode named "test" gets
Why is this the case?
Apologies if there's not enough here. I wanted to try and
get to the crux of my issue without having a lot extra junk.
xalan 2.3.1 by the way.
<xsl:template match="def">
 <xsl:apply-templates select="list[xyz[PPP]]" mode="test" />
<xsl:template match="xyz" mode="test">
 <xsl:message><xsl:value-of select="name()" /></xsl:message>
