Hi All, Is there an elegant pattern via xslt to filter out an existing source xml document based on the contents of another filter xml document? For example: Source xml doc: <Root> <Node1> <Node11> <Node111/> </Node11> <Node12/> <Node2> ... Filter xml doc: <Root> <Node1> <Node111/> </Node1> </Root> Desired results: <Root> <Node1> <Node111/> </Node1> </Root> Now the issue that I'm dealing with is that the filter xml doc is dynamic. That is, it can be different for any given xml source doc configuration based on what another server source specifies. I could recursively build some dynamic xslt and add apply-templates for each node and make use of copy and copy-of based on if a node has children or not and then run that dynamically build transform on the xml doc source...however, can anybody think of another way to do this? Thanks in advance!
