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"

So from <A>txt1<B>txt2<C>txt3</C></B><D>txt4</D></A> I need to get

Is there some "one XPath expression" way now (XSLT 1.1 + Saxon 6.5.x
extensions eventually)?

Thanks, Tomas
