There's nothing in standard XSLT, but you could use saxon:serialize () (and
of course saxon:parse() on the receiving end).

Subject: [xsl] spirit an xml element away and bring it back


we are trying (for a rountripping of xml documents between
arbortext editor and adobe framemaker) to spirit mathml code
away from xml arbortext editor documents (to open in adobe
framemaker) and let the mathml code reappear again when
returning to xml arbortext editor.

the best would be to hide the mathml code in an attribute and
let it also reappear again from that, but we could only make
*one* way (hiding the code) and only in a *processing
instruction* by this xslt

   <xsl:template match="FormulaEntity">
       <xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">&lt;?MATH </xsl:text>
       <xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes"> ?&gt;</xsl:text>

i wonder if there is any way to to spirit an xml element with
all descendants away, hiding it in an attribute and bring it
back to stage after that. our xml input code would be like:


we have to store the <m:math> element and the best would be
to have after that something like:


and bringing the code back to the input code.

is there any solution in xslt for that? for tips many thanks
in advance.
