Default retrieving information from a parent node

How can I retrieve the attributes(the complete tag) of a parent node while I'm at one of it's childs?

Ive tried various xpath expression but none worked.

My problem is the following:


<a a1=1 a2=0>
  <b> </b>
  <b> </b>
  <b> </b>

<xsl:template match = "a" >
<xsl:for-each select="b">

<!-not related code-->

<!-- in this point I have to do: <xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
(output -> <a a1=1 a2=0> )-->

Well you can access them at from the child as ../@* or you could save them before you enter the <xsl:for-each select="b">, <xsl:variable name="aAttributes" select="@*"/> and reuse $aAttributes within the for-each.
