Hi Jeff,

The second match criteria you gave was able to pick off the first

never gets matched.

Yes, that's correct; you need to copy the element and attribute nodes with the stepwise identity transform that copies one node at a time, rather than copy-of.

Ask again if you don't know the transform to which I am referring ... it's in the spec and appears frequently on this list.

The second match will work, but it's not foolproof: if your source has

<content><p><a href="">Special</a> pages are on <i>Special</i> this month!</p></content>

...both the text node in the <a> and the one in the <i> will match...
