RE: how to insert the *complete* content of a node

xs copy
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

so how would I get this, ie what would the xsl be?

Regards Peewee

<grin/> Got me too!

<xsl:template match="mytag">
    <xsl:copy-of select="*|@*"/>

Instead of copying the value of the contents,
copies the contents and its markup.
