The rules written in xsl file created are correct because if I am executing it without python (directly from eclipse as I have xslt plugin installed) it is getting merged fine. Can anybody help me? I am pasting my code snippet below:

Hi BR,
Your code looks very close but not exactly equal to the tutorial here:
http://lxml.de/xpathxslt.html#xslt

Can you try the example on that page and report the results?
Plus your platform, python version and lxml details as described here:

thanks,
