RE: how to insert the *complete* content of a node
I too have hit this problem, perhaps I have overlooked something here but an xs:copy-of or a deep copy will return an exact copy: Given an input of: <mytag>blabla <foo>foo text</foo> other stuff </mytag> an xsl:copy-of will result in: <mytag>blabla <foo>foo text</foo> other stuff </mytag> ie , the same, which is not necessarily what you want, ie you may want: <peter name="yes" att="yes"> blabla <foo>foo text</foo> other stuff </peter> so how would I get this, ie what would the xsl be?
