XSLT Common Errors

When writing XSLT style sheets, it is very common to forget to close HTML elements. However, in XML, a P element must have an opening and a closing tag.

The following line is guaranteed to confuse the parser:

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

Fortunately, the error message ("</P>" expected) is clear.

Similarly, <BR> is an empty tag. In XML, empty tags have the format <BR/>. Again, the error message ("</BR>" expected) is useful to pinpoint the problem.
