Excluding a complete branch while identity copying
I want to be able to copy a complete XML instance as/is except for [say] some specific parts of the input tree. I thought immediately of using an identity transform and specifying copy, but how to remove those pesky sub-trees :- Say this was my input :- <Numbers> <Odds> <One>1</One> <Three>3</Three> <Five>5</Five> </Odds> <Evens> <Two>2</Two> <Four>4</Four> <Six>6</Six> </Evens> <Doubles> <Two>4</Two> <Four>8</Four> <Eight>16</Eight> </Doubles> <Squares> <Two>4</Two> <Four>16</Four> <Eight>64</Eight> </Squares> </Numbers> and I want to copy everything to output except <Evens> and <Squares>. Lets also assume that the order of the input is undefined, so Evens and Squares may/may not be in the positions I have shown above, although I can assume that they are both children of <Numbers>. Further, I don't know what all the children of Evens and Squares are called I just know I don't want them. Whats the easiest way of accomplishing this ? many thanks Fraser.
