Re:  Troublshooting XSLT replace()
I spoke to early, o omniscient one. <unittitle> can contain child
nodes that are being stripped. I tried <xsl:copy-of> instead of
<xsl:value-of>, but they're still being stripped.

The desired result is to keep all child nodes, remove trailing
punctuation, replace Undated/undated, and replace Circa/circa.

Is there a way to do this with the identity template, without using *|node() ?

Thanks,
Nathan
