Subject: apply-templates

1. Since template rules can be applied to all types of nodes, including attributes,
then if we had eg:-

<xsl:template match="ATOM">
                  <xsl:apply-templates select="@UNITS"/>

which applies templates to the UNITS attributes of ATOM elements;
then to process the UNITS attributes following on from the above, would we have a template rule with the following match attribute value ??

<xsl:template match="@UNITS">
                 do whatever

2. What is the advantage of the above over accessing the UNITS attributes of ATOM via value-of in the 1st template rule above ??

2. If apply-templates with no select attribute applies to ALL children of the template rule's matched node, then does "children" refer to just the child element nodes, or to the attribute nodes also ??

Thanks very much in advance.
