Default Dynamically cha nging root node!!!!!!!

I have an xml file for which i have prepared an xslt. I will using .net application to dynamically assign xslt to the xml file.


Now i have a requirement. The root node of xml file can sometimes be <Resp_AppDetail> or <Resp_Submit>. Now depending
on this i have to change the match of <xsl:template match="">. Is it possible to switch "match" template
using if else or so, depending on the output xml root node. If possible where should i do this? in .Net application or XSLT?
Any clue on how should i achieve this?

Is this what you mean?

<xsl:template match="Resp_AppDetail | Resp_Submit">

Alternatively to match the root of the document, just use <xsl:template match="/">.

Various strategies are possible:

(a) you can define a template rule that matches either of these element names (match="A|B")

(b) you can define two different template rules for the two different element names (it doesn't matter if one of the rules is unused)

(c) you can define two separate stylesheets for the two document types, with the common code that they share included into both using xsl:import.

Option (c) is probably the one that gives you most flexibility in the future.
