We are transforming xml being output by a program into xml to match our xml schema. We basically copy the original xml in the following way: <xsl:template match="/"><xsl:apply-templates /></xsl:template> and/or <xsl:template match="*"><xsl:copy><xsl:apply-templates /></xsl:copy></xsl:template> and then we maniputlate the xml where needed. In doing so we rename tags, manipulate tag contents and omit tags altogether. The way we are omitting tags is with a blank template match. For example <xsl:template match="title"/> is our way of omitting any <title> tags from our transformed xml. The problem is, the transformed xml now has blank lines anywhere a <title> tag would have appeared. How do we remove the blank lines from the transformed xml. We are using xml/xslt 1.0 and the xerces parser. Thanks for any help.
