Hi Tim,

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
nodeTime="600000000"/>*

*</nodeInfo></testNode>*

But in actual it is showing like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<testNode>
<nodeInfo>
<nodePeriod nodeTime="600000000"/>
                                <---------------------------- *I want to
remove this space* :)
</nodeInfo>
</testNode>
