Hi all,

This is a grouping question one more time.
It's not actually a grouping problem as commonly understood.

For such an input :

<p foo="foo_att" bar="bar_att" foobar="foobar_att">my text</p>

I'd like such an output :

<foo><bar><foobar>my text</foobar></bar></foo>

the order foo/bar/foobar isn't important here.
<foobar><bar><foo>my text</foo></bar></foobar> would also be ok.

This should work for any number of attributes (including none)

You need to process the attributes one at a time, recursively:

<xsl:template match="p[@*]">
<xsl:variable name="temp">
<xsl:copy-of select="remove(@*, 1)"/>
<xsl:element name="{name(@*[1])}">
<xsl:copy-of select="child::node()"/>
<xsl:apply-templates select="$temp"/>

<xsl:template match="p[not(@*)]">
<xsl:sequence select="."/>
