You can add the following template in an identity transform (search the web for what that is)

<xsl:template match="a">
   <xsl:apply-templates />

Hi everyone,

Please could someone provide an example stylesheet of how to strip <a>
link tags out of a source XHTML document whilst retaining the
remaining node text from within the body. Preferably the output should
have normalised whitespace and a space seperating each extracted piece
of text. eg.


<title>Not wanted</title>
<a>Not wanted</a>
<div class="1">This text is wanted <a href="#">Not wanted</a> and so
is this</div>


<htmltext>This text is wanted and so is this Wanted</htmltext>

I'm sure that the solution is incredibly simple, but after days of
trying I keep hitting a brick wall.

Many thanks, Peter.
