Joerg and J.Pietschmann,
The file below, adjusted per your recommendations, worked!! :) Thank you so
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:xhtml="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" version="1.0"> <xsl:output method="xml" encoding="UTF-8"/> <xsl:template match="*|@*|text()|comment()"> <xsl:copy> <xsl:apply-templates select="*|@*|text()|comment()"/> </xsl:copy> </xsl:template> <xsl:template match="xhtml:div[@class='mgronly']"/> </xsl:stylesheet>
May I ask one more question that will hopefully help me understand more about XSL? I understand now why the xhtml namespace is necessary. But I don't understand why adding the second template worked. If the first one says "copy everything," the second one must somehow override or modify the first. But syntactically, I don't see how that is accomplished.
Thanks again for your help. I have been trying to solve this problem for several weeks.
