This is an xml file, that is to be transformed to html document

This is xsl style sheet which transforms xml file into html

Is it must to use <xsl:template match="/"> ? Can I just avoid root template and create xsl by putting "/" as root before article in value-of tag as below ?[html]<?xml version="1.0"?>

Or do I need to have root template in the stylesheet ? How can we create <xsl:apply-templates /> outside root template ? For example, I have a paragraph in xml file which contains some bold words. Now to create these words bold in html doc , I can use following code

This code is used outside root template, why is it allowed outside root template ?

Please explain in detail as reading from book did not help
