Sure, but that's very general and only fits certain circumstances.

For example if you have:

<xsl:template match="foo">
  <span style="background:blue">
</xsl:template> your html-producing stylesheet and a corresponding template in your
fo-producing stylesheet, what happens when its decided the background
should be red?

How can we arrange it so that change from blue to red is made in one
place rather than both stylesheets?
