joe jSubject: Removing g with XSLT
Author: joe j
Date: 23 Aug 2005 09:41 PM

Anybody have an idea on how I can remove empty <g> elements? Lets say if <g> element does not have any attribute then its empty and should be removed from the svg file.

I tried doing the following:-
<?xml version='1.0'?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
<xsl:output method="xml" omit-xml-declaration="no" indent="no" />

<xsl:template match="/">
<xsl:template match="*[local-name() = 'g']">
<xsl:if test="count(@*) &gt; 0">
<xsl:element name="{local-name()}" namespace="{namespace-uri()}">
<xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
<xsl:template match="*|@*|text()|comment()">
<xsl:apply-templates select="*|@*"/>

my solution works but if i have nested <g> elements then the empty <g> elements inside the non-empty <g> elements are also copied!! how can I solve that with XSLT :-)
