You had to miss my point as I was wrong -- out of mere ignorance I was thinking that
same namespace prefixes from different imported stylesheets can clash with each
other. Now I re-read Mike's book and saw that it is explicitly not so.
Therefore Jeni is right that I can use prefix:* in the match attribute of the

Thanks for the warning. Typically referenced templates reside in the same stylesheet
in which the reference to them is defined.
However, to be on the safe side I will use "x:pGenerator" instead of just
"pGenerator" (I hope my understanding of what is an absolute URI is correct).
Thank you very much for your remarks.
