Subject Re: [jelly-xml] (solved) xml:copy outputs attributes as text also
Date Sun, 11 Jan 2004 22:46:17 GMT

thank you very much for your help. i think it really helped by giving me 
ideas on how to fix the problem i was encountering. i was using jexl and 
xpath. i explain here how i solved the problem in case someone is 
i had smtg like [1] in jsl file. i used <jsl:applyTemplates select="* | 
text()"/> to ensure that attribute values were not output as text (my 
first post in this thread), and the first template was defined to make 
sure that text nodes were rendered (otherwise they didnt appear). 
however that didnt do it since text children were outputted after all 
other children. i solved that by just defining another empty template : 
<jsl:template match="@"/> and replacing the <jsl:applyTemplates 
select="* | text()"/> isntruction by this one <jsl:applyTemplates />.

this "solution" seems to work, however im not really satisfied with it, 
because it seems a bit weak. but, well, that will do it for now. thanks 

--------- previous bogus templates -------------
   <jsl:template match="text()">
         <x:set var="p" select="."/>
    <jsl:template match="*">
           <jsl:applyTemplates select="* | text()"/>
