Hi XSL guru's and experts,

I was wondering...
Is there a way (in XSLT1.0 or 2.0) to prohibit an element to be constructed and added to the result tree, while other XSL instruction inside are being processed normally?

In other words, how can I transform this XML: <root> <node encapsulate="container"/> <node/> </root>

into this:

		<node encapsulate="container"/>

without any decisive structure or pattern matching?

the following template throws an error about the Qname (XSLT1.0):

<xsl:template match="node">
	<xsl:element name="{@encapsulate}">
		<xsl:copy-of select="."/>

Thanks in advance -- Joris Gillis (http://www.ticalc.org/cgi-bin/acct-view.cgi?userid=38041) Vincit omnia simplicitas Keep it simple
