 testing element's contents
hi all,

Thanks to everyone who gave me advice on my previous
post about images and captions. Now, I have another
tricky lil' xslt problem. If a paragraph element
contains ONLY a media element OR a media element
surrounded by a link element and nothing more (read,
no other nodes, be they text or not), such as:

height="255" width="432"/></p>

I need to strip the p tags out of resulting output.

However, if it does contain other nodes, such as:

height="255" width="432"/>This is my news release. The
authors will be typing the news release content in
here! I am not sure what this news release is even
about, but lets see how it comes out in XML, shall we?
As I see it coming out as:</p>

I need to leave it alone.

Here is what I have so far. It only looks to see if a
media element or a media element wrapped by a link
element exists, but does not consider if there is a
text node after a media or link element.

<xsl:template match="p">
	<xsl:when test="((descendant::*[1])[self::Link] and
(descendant::*[2])[self::Media]) or

Thoughts? Ideas? Criticisms?
