XSLT » xsl:template » name="qname"

The name attribute is mandatory unless the element has a match attribute, then this attribute is optional. In other words, there must be either a match or name attribute, or both. A qname is a qualified name that is composed of an optional namespace prefix, a colon which is only present if there is a prefix, and a mandatory XML name (for example, xsl:zipcode or zipcode). If the name attribute is present, you can use the xsl:call-template element to invoke the template. To do this, the name attribute must be the same for both the xsl:template and the xsl:call-template elements.
