It took Michael Kay's XSLT Programmers Reference for me to understand
this too!  Excellent book, btw.

Apply templates looks at the node-set returned by select="..."
to find a template to use.  This node-set is not a pointer to
a node in the current document, but an actual set of nodes. 
The document function returns a set of nodes...

Well, that's how I think it works.  Suddenly many usefull constructs
popped to mind...

Of course, I may be wrong!  :-)
