Default how to differentiate templates based on cases

Hi i've the below two cases in XML.


<para num="01"><page num="05"/>abcdefghij ancfrgthig</para>

<para num="01">abcdefgrghy sdfdfhrtfd<page num="05"/></para>

<para num="01">abcdefgrghy <page num="05"/>sdfdfhrtfd</para>

<para num="01"><span class="bold">abcdefgrghy sdfdfhrtfd</span><page num="05"/></para>

<para num="01"><span class="bold">abcdefgrghy</span><page num="05"/> sdfdfhrtfd</para>

<para num="01"><span class="bold">abcdefgrghy</span> sdfdfhrtfd<page num="05"/> </para>

<para num="01"><span class="bold">abcdefgrghy sdfdfhrtfd</span><page num="05"/> </para>
I need to differentiate these two cases, because i want to make different templates for each.

I use directly <xsl:apply-templates/>, but here if i have the first case stated above, first the page template needs to be called by the para template.

Hi Thanks for the reply, actually i've solved this. Thanks again. And here is the solution.

            <xsl:when test="child::node()[1][self::*]">
													<xsl:apply-templates select="child::page[1]"/>
													  <div class="para">
               <xsl:call-template name="phrase"/>												
                <xsl:apply-templates select="child::node()[not(self::page)]"/>
                 <div class="para">
                     <xsl:call-template name="phrase"/>
