Andrew (and Michael),

First, "Thanks" again for your kind input.  

I've been
able to get things working and I thought I'd share my solution with the group.
Using:  match="para[not(@selectout) or contains(@selectout, 'html')]" does not
work because the "contains(@selectout, 'html')" clause returns a boolean and
not a node(). 


Creating two templates simplified everything and now all is
well:

<xsl:template match="para[@selectout]">
    <xsl:if
test="contains(@selectout, 'html')">
        ...
    </xsl:if>

    <xsl:if
test="not(contains(@selectout, 'html'))">
        <!-- do nothing -->
</xsl:if>
</xsl:template>


<xsl:template match="para[not(@selectout)]">
...
</xsl:template>




Cheers,

Saxon should tell you the
line numbers and match patterns of the two
templates that have the same match
priority in the warning message...
you seem to be posting only half the
message.

If that is genuinely all you are seeing, then raise it over on the
saxon-help list as they will be keen to hear about it.

If not, then please
post the full warning message, or your full xslt
if its small enough, or a
small complete runnable example that
recreates the problem.

cheers

Saxon.

for the last five years I've been using it.  So, back to "XSLT 2.0 and XPath
2.0 4th Ed. Programmer's Reference" by Michael Kay.

Anyway, why don't you put the or clause inside the predicate?
