In XSL, you can encapsulate code in a "template". This acts rather like a function, and can be very useful. Here is a typical template:

<xsl:template name="demo"match="people/person">    <xsl:value-of select="@name"/>    <xsl:value-of select="@email"/></xsl:template>

You can call a template using the <xsl:call-template> tag.

We can now rework our loop to use a template:

<xsl:template name="person"match="people/person">    <xsl:value-of select="@name"/>    <xsl:value-of select="@email"/></xsl:template><xsl:template match="/"><xsl:for-eachselect="people/person">    <xsl:call-template name="person"/></xsl:for-each>
