Default setting default values

Hi,
   I am doing some xml-xml transformation.For some of the output elements, if the corresponding source element is null/does not exist I need to set the output to a constant(default value). Is there a way to set default value OR do I have to check if the node exists and if it exists check the length of the enclosed text for zero?

Actually I need to do this for multiple elements. I wanted to look into doing this using templates. Is this feasible with templates? My experience is limited to writing some templates for formatting data. I am eager to do this in the right way.

Thanks,
