There isn't a way to do something like xsl:apply-imports with named

However, you might be able to change your named templates into
equivalent moded templates and thus be able to use xsl:apply-imports
instead.  If you change your templates to:

 <xsl:template match="node()" mode="foo">

 <xsl:import href="common.xsl"/>
 <xsl:template match="node()" mode="foo">

and then 'call' this moded template with:

  <xsl:apply-templates select="." mode="foo" />

rather than:

  <xsl:call-template name="foo" />

then that should work as you want it.

Of course there may be other ways around it - perhaps you can change
the name of the template in the importing stylesheet, and call the one
you're importing from within it?

I hope that helps anyway,
