[xsl] how to keep context when copying
Is there a way of keeping the context information when you copy a
node? Here's my use-case....
I have a document that has "refs" and "defs" and I'd like to write a
function that returns a "def"
node when you pass it a "ref".
I've got this working fine using keys to lookup the defs. The
fdx:GetDef function basically boils
down to the following template (XSLT 2)....(it's actually a little
more complicated because depending
on the type of the "ref", it has to go lookup a different key)
<xsl:copy-of select="key('keyItems', $ref/@OID)"/>
My problem is that the nodes returned by this function lack ancestor
info that would be useful
in downstream processing of the node. Is there a way that I can
rewrite the function to return
a node that allows me to get at the node's ancestors for example.
