Im sure its a fairly basic question for most but Im just starting out on XSLT and cant find any resources to solve my problem.

I want to perform an operation based on an 'if' clause as shown below

<xsl:template match="/">
   <PrimeConcept><xsl:apply-templates select="/archetype/definition/node"/>

<xsl:template match="node">
<xsl:if test="parent::node()=definition">
<xsl:attribute name="id"><xsl:value-of select="@id"/></xsl:attribute>
<xsl:attribute name="type"><xsl:value-of select="@rm_class"/></xsl:attribute>

Theres a problem with the <xsl:if> statement where Im trying to determine whether the <node> element is the child of the <definition> element. I think theres a problem in the way Im trying to access the parent node but cant figure out the right way.

Could someone please help.
