It is clarified by erratum E8, which expands the text to "ignore the
offending nodes together with their content". This brings the rules for
xsl:attribute into line with those for xsl:comment and
xsl:processing-instruction. (But the treatment is different from the
handling of non-text nodes with output method="text", where the offending
nodes are ignored but their content isn't.)
