I have a question about how Saxon chooses which node to match next.

I have some XML that looks a bit like this:

<x>
   <y>
      <z>Peter</z>
   </y>
   <z> </z>
   <y>
      <z>Jones</>
   </y>
</x>

What I'm trying to achieve is the follow:

<x>
      <z>Peter</z>
      <z> </z>
      <z>Jones</>
</x>

With the code below:

<xsl:template match="x" >
        <xsl:apply-templates select="y|z"/>
</xsl:template>

Have you considered:


<xsl:template match="x" >
        <xsl:apply-templates select=".//z"/>
</xsl:template>

... or is there some reason you need to know when you are going through <y>. You can always look from <z> to know what your parent is.

I hope this helps.
