xsl:copy

I'm trying to perform a xsl:copy of a xml file and re-format a couple of attribute contents. From what I've read and the examples I've seen I've been able to make the copy but its not applying or matching my templates. I'm running from a Java app and I get a xml output file and I get no errors. But the contents is the same as the original. Any pointers are appreciated. Here is the xsl file. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"xmlns:AG="http://support.agile.com/misc/axml/2005/11/"xmlns="http://www.w3.org/TR/html4"xsi:schemaLocation="http://support.agile.com/misc/axml/2004/12/ http://support.agile.com/misc/axml/2004/12/"><xsl:output method="html"/> <!-- Whenever you match any node or any attribute --> <xsl:template match="node()|@*"> <xsl:copy> <xsl:apply-templates/> <!-- select="@*|node()" --> </xsl:copy> </xsl:template> <xsl:template match="Description"> <xsl:element name="Description"> <xsl:variable name="Desc" select="substring(AG:TitleBlock/AG:Description, 1, 36)"/> <xsl:variable name="DescUpper" select="xsl:upper-case($Desc)"/> <xsl:value-of select="$DescUpper"/> </xsl:element> </xsl:template> <xsl:template match="Rev"> <xsl:element name="Rev"> <xsl:variable name="revision" select="AG:TitleBlock/AG:Rev" /> <xsl:value-of select="substring-before($revision, ' ')"/> </xsl:element> </xsl:template></xsl:stylesheet>

Try to add

<xsl:template match="/"><xsl:apply-templates/></xsl:template>

The match of "/" is usually the piece needed to invoke the rest of the templates by the apply-templates elements.If this doesn't help, could you please provide a sample XML. I seem to be unable to get used to your schema, so if you have a sample valid XML file, this would help the investigation :) .

This doesn't make much difference you know. Sample XMLs are essential in order to see what happens to what. I don't have experience with the xsl:copy element, but I don't think I can't without some kind of proper XML for the XSLT to transform.
