11.2. xsl:attribute-set: Define a named attribute set

Often you will want to add one or more attributes to an element you are generating with the xsl:element tag. The xsl:attribute-set element lets you create a named set of attributes so you can add them merely by referring to that name with the use-attribute-sets attribute of xsl:element.

Use one or more xsl:attribute children as the content of this element. Those attributes and their values make up the attributes in the set.

Attributes of xsl:attribute-set include:

name (required)

Gives this attribute set a name.

use-attribute-sets

Any attribute sets named in this value become part of the attribute set you are creating.
