deep "copy-of" a source fragment
I'm trying to deep copy [the _content_ of] an xhtml body element. I have users who enter arbitary HTML which I then pass through HTML TIDY which produces a nice well-formed XHTML document for me. I want to extract the body and store the content only.
With my existing attempts, I either get a concatenated string of all the leaf text-nodes, or I get the whole entire file.
Here's what's stange, if I do a
<?xml version="1.0"?> <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
<xsl:template match="/"> <xsl:copy-of select="node()"/> </xsl:template>
I get the entire source tree copied to result tree.
*This is to be expectd*
but if I change
then I get leaf nodes again :( I also tried
match="/html/body/" match="/html/body/*" match="/html/body/@*|node()" match="/html/body/node()"
no dice... I either get leaf text nodes or the whole entire file.
makes no difference if I change
Is there no way at all to copy a fragment from the source tree onto the result tree?!
I've also tried a boatload of other things... too many to list...
I know I can do this using a regular expression instead, but that's not the point, I _should_ be able to do it easily with XSLT.
