Hi Martin,

Thanks for replying.
I have a variable in which I have my Item tag. I have one template defined
for PackageNumber/@level (which is inside Item) for which I have set
mode="step2". I want to call the same functionality of this template but
with few modification. So I want to create 2 more templates for
PackageNumber/@level with mode="step3" and mode="step4". I will call these
based on certain conditions using apply-template tag like this,
<xsl:apply-templates select="PackNumber/@level" mode="step2" />;
<xsl:apply-templates select="PackNumber/@level" mode="step3" /> and
<xsl:apply-templates select="PackNumber/@level" mode="step4" />

This is what I am trying:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
xmlns:exsl="http://exslt.org/common"
exclude-result-prefixes="exsl"
version="1.0">
 <xsl:output indent="yes" omit-xml-declaration="yes"/>
 <xsl:template match="@*|node()">
            <xsl:copy>
                <xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()"/>
            </xsl:copy>
        </xsl:template>

        <xsl:template match="text()" />

<xsl:template match="Item" mode="step1">
   <xsl:copy-of select="." />
</xsl:template>

        <xsl:template match="PackNumber/@level" mode="step2">
        <xsl:choose>
        <xsl:when test="not(preceding::PackNumber/@level =.)">
        <xsl:element name="counter">
        <xsl:attribute name="level">
        <xsl:value-of
select="count(preceding::PackNumber/@level[not(preceding::PackNumber/@level=
.)])+1"/>
        </xsl:attribute>
        </xsl:element>
        </xsl:when>
        <xsl:otherwise>
        <xsl:element name="counter">
        <xsl:attribute name="level">
        <xsl:value-of
select="count(preceding::PackNumber/@level[not(preceding::PackNumber/@level=
.)])"/>
        </xsl:attribute>
        </xsl:element>
        </xsl:otherwise>
        </xsl:choose>
             <PNumber>
                <xsl:value-of select="."/>
            </PNumber>
        </xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="PackNumber/@level" mode="step3">
....Some rules here.......
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="PackNumber/@level" mode="step4">
....Some rules here.......
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="/">
     <xsl:variable name="union">
                <xsl:apply-templates select="//Item" mode="step1" />
                <xsl:apply-templates select="document('File2.xml')/*//Item"
mode="step1" />
    </xsl:variable>
        <A>
            <target>
               <xsl:choose>
                   <xsl:when test="Condition1">
                        <xsl:apply-templates
select="exsl:node-set($union)/*" mode="step2" />
                    </xsl:when>
                   <xsl:when test="Condition2">
                        <xsl:apply-templates
select="exsl:node-set($union)/*" mode="step3" />
                    </xsl:when>
                   <xsl:otherwise>
                        <xsl:apply-templates
select="exsl:node-set($union)/*" mode="step4" />
                    </xsl:otherwise>
             </xsl:choose>
            </target>
        </A>
    </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

I read in O'Relly's XSLT book that to process same set of nodes several
times, use mode attribute of xsl:template element. I want to do the same.
But if I call the template using mode it is printing only the text nodes.
How can I print the node-sets?

Thanks,
Varun
