[xsl] Passing xml nodes to a function

Subject: [xsl] Passing xml nodes to a function

    I have a requirement to pass a parent node to a recursive function and
then to recurse through all the child nodes. I am a novice at xsl and so this
is proving to be quite taxing.

 Here is the code:

   This is where I call the function:-

    		<xsl:call-template name="getChildDetails">

		    <xsl:with-param name="children" select=".//response/*/response/*"/>

 and this is the actual function where I want to test for the presence of
children, output the node name and then call the method again until all nodes
are printed

<xsl:template name="getChildDetails">
      	<xsl:param name="children"/>

      	<xsl:if test="count(children::*) > 0">

	     <td><span class="text"><xsl:value-of select="name()"/></span></td>
	     <xsl:call-template name="getChildDetails">
	         <xsl:with-param name="children" select="child::*"/>


  Here is an example of an XML:


   The output I expect from this xsl once it has run through the recursive
function is as follows:-

		teleType	H
		teleNumber	0145454545

  I look forward to your help.
