Your questions about XML Schema (questions 2, 3, and 4) are off topic for this
list.

Question 1 is so broad that it's hard to see where you are coming from. What
have you read? Every book on XSLT has an explanation of xsl:apply-templates.
The explanations approach the topic in different ways, but if there's
something you don't understand after reading such material, you should try to
tell us exactly what it is about the instruction that you don' understand.

This doesn't make sense....

node with it's select attribute context node. Is this true? if so, does the
path to the node matter when matching both attribute up(most the xPath syntax
be the same for both attribute for the apply-template to be able to call that
particular template)? And is this the only way to use apply-template
element(can it not stand alone to match a particular node context by absolute
path in the target or link to xml document)?

I'm warping a name simpleType name nameType in an element that have the
attribute type with the value of nameType. Is this legal; to warp a name type
as so: </xs:documentation> </xs:annotation> <xs:element name="name"
type="nameType"> <xs:simpleType name="nameType"> <xs:restriction
base="xs:string"> <xs:length value="25"/> </xs:restriction> </xs:simplyType>
</xs:element> </xs:schema>

or no then an explanation comment please.

> is the targetNameSapce needed... I find it non-necessary to do when it
can(by what I'm reading) define top level element and complex type(another
question is that by definning type level complex type, do that also mean that
type level complex when use in a element that is nested in another element
gain the namespace too?). I find it unnecessary to use targetNameSapce when it
doesn't cover all element being defined in the schema.
