 XSLT Replace for '<?xml:namespace>?
I'm stuck trying to eliminate an opening tag from an XML file. Keep in mind: I
cannot change the format of the source file. It has HTML embedded in a CDATA
section. I am running a series of regex replaces and concats to clean up the

But occasionally the source file has a "<?xml:namespace prefix =
lbxrt />" tag stuck in the HTML section that I need to simply delete. I am
trying to use a regex group replace to do this, but regex always leaves "<?"
no matter what I do. It's as if it starts the match after the "?". I tried
wrapping this element in a CDATA section, but had the same problem--the match
came after "?". This tag can appear anywhere in the CDATA section in the
source file--so I can't simply look for it in a particular place.

Please give
me any ideas. Thanks.

/><lbxrt:rich-text xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml";
