I am a new XSLT developper. I have this request to fulfill, please help.

Example XML feed:
<emea_created_ticket customer='abc'>

According to the value of xml_transaction_type, the root node after transfomation need to be different, eg.
if xml_transaction_type='order', the transformed xml will be like:

<nt_created_order customer='abc'>

If xml_transaction_type='ticket' or anything else, the transformed xml will be like:
<nt_created_ticket customer='abc'>

I am able to change the tag names and content in ... area, but can't change the root tag name. If you have answer, please let me know.

XSLT has "if" and "choose" functionality. You'll need to construct an XPATH expression to find and evaluate the "<xml_transaction_type>" node, and depending on its value, create a "<nt_created_ticket>" or a "<nt_created_order>" node.
