Re: xsl:for-each-group and identity transform
<h> <xsl:copy-of select="descendant::node()"/> </h> you (almost never) want to do that: copying descendants has a predicatable but "strange" effect on a document tree. If it was <h1>this <em> and <code>that</code></em>.</h1> then you'll get <h1>this <em> and <code>that</code> and<code>that</code> that.</h1> which isn't usually (or ever) what you want, with exponential expansion, the more deeply nested the input the more copies you get in the result. This also looks strange: <xsl:template match="element()|comment()|processing-instruction()" mode="group"> <xsl:copy-of select="current-group()"/> </xsl:template> don't you want the identity template here, otherwise you're never going to apply templates to most nodes as faras I can see. copy-of stops the apply-template processing. something like <xsl:template match="node(0" mode="group"> <xsl:copy> <xsl:copy-of select="@* except @the-attributes-you dont-want"/> <xsl:apply-templates mode="group"/> </xsl:copy> </xsl:template> David ________________________________________________________________________ The Numerical Algorithms Group Ltd is a company registered in England and Wales with company number 1249803.
