Filtering child text nodes by node name
Greetings All, I am processing the following sample source: ... <title>Configuring the <command>process</command> command <indexterm> <primary>In title</primary> <secondary>first</secondary> </indexterm> <indexterm> <primary>In title</primary> <secondary>second</secondary> </indexterm> </title> ... I already have scripting in place to process the <indexterm> elements inside the <title> and move them to another location in the output. The problem is that I need to output a title that ignores the child elements but retains their content but _not_ if the child element is an indexterm. The output I need is: <topic-title>Configuring the process command</topic-title> Naturally, I started with something like the following: <xsl:template match="title> <xsl:element name="topic-title"> <xsl:value-of select="."/ </xsl:element> </xsl:template> Which generated the output: <topic-title>Configuring the process commandIn titlefirstIn titlesecond</topic-title> I've been playing around with various predicates on text nodes but they don't provide the desired output. For example: <xsl:template match="title> <xsl:element name="topic-title"> <xsl:value-of select="./text()[not(ancestor::indexterm)]"/ </xsl:element> </xsl:template> Generates the following output: <topic-title>Configuring the </topic-title> Any assistance is appreciated.
