Um, because I don't know what I'm doing :-) I copied somebody's identity template and it used mode="copy" throughout. I added the normalize-space in a template matching text() items because it looked like I could do it in the same pass (and I can, just not the way I was doing it; I presumed that setting a higher priority would be enough). >> <!-- non-empty: has children, is a text node, has value or attribute --> >> <xsl:if test="node() or * or text() or string(.) or @*"> > The expression of the xsl:if "test" attribute seems strange to me. And to me, it got to be what it was because terser expressions always seemed to let stuff through that I didn't want to keep. > Is there any reason why you don't have a separate template for element nodes? > <!-- Drop any empty elements --> > <xsl:template match="*[not(node())]" mode="copy" /> I tried this with match="not(node())" which did not do what I wanted. Didn't try *[note(node())] because expressions like that don't seem to occur to me yet :-( Cheers Trevor
