RE: normalize-space processing all nodes hack?
Oups, sorry guys, I have simplified my example too much :( In fact I need to apply some filtering rules on text() nodes (normalize-space(A) was there originally, but it has come out lately that some of text() nodes must be ignored). So, what I really need, is all text of A but excluding descendants of B, like: <xsl:variable name="textOnly" select="normalize-space(A//text()[not(ancestor::B)])"/> So from <A>txt1<B>txt2<C>txt3</C></B><D>txt4</D></A> I need to get "txt1txt4". Is there some "one XPath expression" way now (XSLT 1.1 + Saxon 6.5.x extensions eventually)?
