xsl:next-match instruction was introduced in XSLT 2.0.
It is very similar to
but with a different algorithm for choosing the next template to execute. It chooses the template rule
that matches the current node and that would have been chosen if the current template rule and all
higher precedence/priority rules were not there.
xsl:next-match is nearly always preferable to
since the rules for using it are much more flexible and more intuitive.
