Re:  How to strip off all empty elements from a XML doc
. your solution does not cover nested (!) empty elements.

I'd say the problem specification was in error rather than the supplied
code, but whatever...

It appears that you want to lose any elements without non-white text

so add

<xsl:strip-space elements="*"/>

and then change

<xsl:template match="*[not(node())]"/>


<xsl:template match="*[not(string(.)]"/>
