wrong, <xsl:apply-templates/> DOES hit child PIs

    <?foo bar?>

   <xsl:template match="foo">
    <xsl:template match="processing-instruction()">
        <xsl:copy-of select="."/>

   <?foo bar?>

The reference Philipp added talks about the built-in template
It means that you need to have a template for the process-instruction()
But you were already having that

PIs are considered nodes

Hope this helps

Hi Karl,

no, <xsl:apply-templates/> does not hit PIs. You have to use processing-instruction() or node() (also hits element, text, PI and comment nodes).


PS: See also section 5.8 in http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt:
"The built-in template rule for processing instructions and comments is to do nothing."

Is an <xsl:apply-templates/> going to hit on child processing
instructions matches, or do I need to specifically select them like:
<xsl:apply-templates select="processing-instructions()"/>

<xsl:template match="processing-instrunction()">
.. do something ..
