RE: Copy a node inside a template but exclude a deeply
Thanks Michael, For completeness, I accomplished your code below by copying your two templates into my xslt stylesheet and replacing - <xsl:copy-of select="content/main/show/node()"/> with - <xsl:apply-templates mode="copy" select="content/main/show/node()"/> It seems to work very well, hopefully that is as you described I should do? Cheers Adam. -----Original Message----- From: Michael Kay [mailto:mike@xxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Mon 9/4/2006 12:52 PM To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: RE: Copy a node inside a template but exclude a deeply nested child > I have an existing xslt and in one of the templates it makes > a copy of a node from the xml document, I now have the need > to exclude a deeply nested child from that copy You have to replace the xsl:copy-of with a recursive use of the identity template: <xsl:template match="*" mode="copy"> <xsl:copy> <xsl:copy-of select="@*"/> <xsl:apply-templates mode="copy"/> <xsl:copy> </xsl:template> <xsl:template match="element-to-be-excluded" mode="copy"/> Michael Kay http://www.saxonica.com/
