You can easyly achive this with the following catch all roule: <xsl:template match="node()" priority="2" /> you could use the same for attributes, but generally when you do a deep copy, you realy want to get the attributes. I'm not sure about the priority, but if you don't assign a not default (weeker) priority at last some xslt processors complain about ambiquose matches ... you should just try it and in case of trouble check your favorite manual. -- Goetz Bock IT Consultant Dipl.-Inf.
