RE: Problems copying elements recursively.
Thanks Tom. I am sorry I was not very clear in the question. It is true that I am trying to display the angle brackets, etc. Here is what i am doing: I am transforming the nodetree into a table to display as html. However, I am also trying to show the raw xml for a particular node and all its decendants. The problem is that the templates i am using does not traverse the tree recursively. it only shows the node and its immediate children...maybe my xpath statement is incorrect. --- "Passin, Tom" <tpassin@xxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: > [ Imrran Wahid ] > > > > I've been trying with this piece for a while but > still > > cannot get it right. > > > > I am trying to copy a certain node-tree from the > xml > > document via xsl style sheet.
