    I appreciate your reply. Prabably I should have been more clear in my
mail. When I mentioned top-level (school in my case) I didn't exactly mean
top-level but inside of the top-level element but outside of the actual
root (student) where my student data is.

I did note the point on the 'resulttreefragment part'.

<xsl:variable name="nset">
 <xsl:copy-of select="/campus[@name = $value]"/>

as has been said already in thi sthread, don't (ever) do that, which
generates a result tree fragment (and is expensive even in XSLt2 where
it would generate a node set)


<xsl:variable name="nset" select="/campus[@name = $value]"/>

However there will only be one element node below / so thi snode set
will have at most one element in it, depending on whether the top level
element is a campus element with that attribute. Is that really what you

  and then define the template match = "campus". But
  <xsl:template match="campus"> match other campus nodes as well.

It would match, but unless you apply templates to those other nodes,
they would never be processed.
