Hello all,

I hope this is not too much of a niche question, but I imagine many of you are far more seasoned oXygen users than I am.

Iâm writing documentation into an XML schema using xs:annotation and xs:documentation and oXygen outputs that beautifully.

Now, if I want to just extract the content of the xs:documentation tags as plain text for an ad-hoc use e.g. pasting into a Word doc that can be reviewed, commented etc.?

Conversely, if Iâd like to generate just the outer XML without any xs:annotation and xs:documentation tags?

Would it be too optimistic to think that there might be some tried and tested XML stylesheets available for these purposes? I donât see this being technically intractable. Just asking before I reinvent this wheel.

Best wishes,
