Well, you could certainly do this with XQuery, which uses XPath and is not XSLT. But I, for one, don't know of any way to ask an <xi:include> to grab a node w/o its descendants. > I need some help with an XPath issue (this is for an xi:include in > an XML doc, I am not using XLST to transform the XML, so I'm not > sure if this is even possible).
