Hi,
    If 2 templates match is there a way to execute both templates instead of 
just executing the template that wins.

    In rule based programming if 2 rules have a match, first the rule with 
higher salience or specificity fires then the one with lower salience.

    In XSLT the higher priority rule fires and the lower priority rule is 
ignored.

    I recommend that there be a mechanism to allow all templates that match 
to execute be executed.

     Also does XSLT require stylesheet processors to use the RETE algorithm?

    Thanks
        Dhruv
