Thanks for replying.
No that is not the output I am looking for.
I just want to scrape out <nodeBase base="0" />
But the way I have written my xsl file it is removing it but it is also
leaving a blank space there. I want my output to look like this:
*<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><testNode><nodeInfo><nodePeriod
But in actual it is showing like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<---------------------------- *I want to
remove this space* :)
