I'm creating an XML to XML transform. Transforming a kluged DITA model into standard DITA. I have to transform something called <reference-content> into a <task> child of the root task.

I can easily transform <reference-content> to <task>. Where I'm stuck is making the new task a sibling of the currently containing <taskbody>. Currently <reference-content> is a child of <taskbody>. Once <reference-content> is tranformed to <task>, I need to close the containing <taskbody> and make the new <task> a sibling of that <taskbody>.

You don't show your XSLT, but I suspect you need something like the following to selectively copy what you want in the first task and then construct the second task:

  <xsl:template match="taskbody">
      <xsl:copy-of select="node()[not(self::reference-content)]"/>
          <xsl:copy-of select="reference-content/node()"/>

I hope this helps.
