Jeff HatchSubject: XSLT grouping problem
Author: Jeff Hatch

All,

I've been chewing on this for some time now and would love some suggestions. Coming from a document-centric environment, I am given xml that looks like this:

<chapter>
<para>This is a paragraph in the chapter</para>
<line_first>This is first line of a stanza of poetry</line_first>
<line>This is line of poetry</line>
<line>This is line of poetry</line>
<line>This is line of poetry</line>
<line_last>This is last line of a stanza of poetry</line_last>
<para>This is a paragraph in the chapter</para>
</chapter>

The challenge is to perform copy and grouping operations to a) copy all existing structure as is, using copy-of, which is not a problem. However, to the above xml I wish to apply additional structure to create a poem stanza:

<chapter>
<para>This is a paragraph in the chapter</para>
<stanza>
<line_first>This is first line of poetry</line_first>
<line>This is line of poetry</line>
<line>This is line of poetry</line>
<line>This is line of poetry</line>
<line_last>This is last line of poetry</line_last>
</stanza>
<para>This is a paragraph in the chapter</para>
</chapter>

My difficulty stems from being dealt two dissimilar element names at the beginning and end of the block of xml that needs to be grouped. My attempts to do this with group-starting-with and group-ending-with have failed. Performing group-adjacent on the <line> elements miss the first_ and last_line elements. Any thoughts?

Hi Jeff,

The attached solution assumes that only the chapter element has sub elements.

Hope this helps
