Invokes a named template.
Permitted parent elements: any XSLT element whose content model is sequence-constructor; any literal result element
Name of the called template, must match the name defined on an xsl:template element.
Notes on the Saxon implementation
Until 9.6, Saxon supported an alternative instruction
saxon:call-template, but this has now been dropped. This had
the same effect as
xsl:call-template, except that it allowed
name attribute may be written as an attribute value template,
allowing the called template to be decided at run-time. In place of this
facility, XSLT 3.0 offers higher-order functions.
To supply parameters to the called template, one or more xsl:with-param elements may be included. The values
of these parameters are available to the called template. If the
xsl:with-param element specifies
then the parameter is passed transparently through to templates called at any
depth, but it can only be referenced by an
xsl:param element that
tunnel="yes". If the default value,
tunnel="no" is used, then the parameter value is available only
in the immediately called template, and only if the
tunnel="no" (explicitly or by defaulting the
The context of the called template (for example the current node and current node list) is the same as that for the calling template; however the variables defined in the calling template are not accessible in the called template.
