Thanks Mike - the question is how to lose the html: prefix *and* unescape all incoming text nodes. (This is a little weird, I know.) The problem stems from the fact that I have a computer generated XHTML document. The text in the document was typed in via web forms. This is the reason for the escaped html embedded in valid XHTML. The idea is that the users can type in HTML - valid or invalid - and it will appear in the HTML stream exactly as they typed it. Brian btw, I'm using Xalan 1.0.0, Xerces (whatever the latest version is), Java 1.2.2, WinNT, JRun, IIS > -----Original Message----- > From: Mike Brown [mailto:mike@xxxxxxxx] > Sent: Thursday, April 06, 2000 1:37 PM > To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx > Subject: Re: XHTML to HTML 4 > > > > I've got an xhtml document similar to this fragment: > > > > <html:table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="5px"> > > <html:tr> > > <html:td> > > <html:span class="StoryHeadline">b</html:span> > > Namespaces are inherited by element descendants; it shouldn't > be necessary > to use the prefix all the way down, although total disambiguation > of element types isn't harmful. > > > I need to convert this document to HTML 4 > > > <?xml version="1.0"?> > > > > <xsl:stylesheet > > xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" > > xmlns:html='http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml' > > exclude-result-prefixes="html" > > > > > don't forget version="1.0" > > ("An xsl:stylesheet element must have a version attribute", > the spec says.) > > > <xsl:output method="text" /> > > Does your XSL processor support the "html" output method? > They all do, as > far as I know.
