Sorry, bug in that version. Try this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform";
xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema";
exclude-result-prefixes="xs"
version="1.0">

<xsl:output method="html"/>

<xsl:template match="//xs:documentation">
<div>
<xsl:copy-of select="*"/>
</div>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="*" priority="-1"/>

</xsl:stylesheet>

Try this (untested):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform";
xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema";
exclude-result-prefixes="xs"
version="1.0">

<xsl:output method="text"/>

<xsl:template match="//xs:documentation">
<div>
<xsl:copy-of select="*"/>
</div>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="*" priority="-1"/>

</xsl:stylesheet>

âsorry, one final question : - )

In the first stylesheet, to extract the xs:documentation tagsâ contents, I am losing some text that is containing in HTML tags (these were added to give presentation to the docs that oXygen outputs).

Is there a shorthand way to make the first stylesheet include HTML contained in the xs:documentation tags?

Best wishes,

Michael

To extract the content of xs:documentation tags:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform";
xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema";
exclude-result-prefixes="xs"
version="1.0">

<xsl:output method="text"/>

<xsl:template match="// xs:documentation/text()">
<xsl:if test="normalize-space(.)">
<xsl:value-of select="normalize-space(.)"/>
<xsl:text>&#13;</xsl:text>
</xsl:if>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="text()" priority="-1"/>

</xsl:stylesheet>


To process the rest of the content while suppressing the xs:documentation and xs:annotation tags, create a stylesheet that contains the following templates:

<xs:template match="xs:documentation"/>
<xs:template match="xs:annotation"/>

And then import the stylesheet that normally processes the content. Process your content with this new stylesheet. The two templates above will suppress any processing of those elements that the normal stylesheets do while otherwise processing it in exactly the same way they always did.

The latter is untested.

Hope this helps,

Mark

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,

Michael Hopwood
