If I start with an input XML document that contains mixed text with <word> elements like this:

b& this is just <word correction=btoob>to</word> funny

Ibd like to write an XSLT stylesheet that yields as output

b& this is just <word origerror=btob>too</word> funny

So in the output I effectively want (in the same <word> element) to

	1.  Set the value of a new attribute to the original text() value, and
	2.  Reset the text() value to be the value of the original @correction attribute

Ibve tried many variants of the following, so far without success.  Ibm using SaxonHE9-7-0-6J;
it runs, but the results are not as expected/hoped.

Ibve tried matching the text() in a separate template, but I canbt seem to reference the attribute values of the parent node (i.e., <word>) of the text() and the parent nodebs attributes.  E.g, the following doesnbt work for me, failing somehow in the
select=b../@correctionb  reference.

<xsl:template match=bword[@correction]/text()b>
	<xsl:value-of select=b../@correctionb/>

You can use

	<xsl:template match="@* | node()">
			<xsl:apply-templates select="@* | node()"/>
	<xsl:template match="word[@correction]/text()">
		<xsl:value-of select="../@correction"/>
	<xsl:template match="word/@correction">
		<xsl:attribute name="origerror" select=".."/>
