Hi Jonina,

in a template for <media> just pull in the value of <image-size> like this:

<xsl:template match="media">
  <xsl:copy>
    <xsl:apply-templates select="@*" />
    <xsl:attribute name="image-size"
select="normalize-space(..//image-size[1])"/>
  </xsl:copy>
</xsl:template>

This assumes that <media> is an empty element.

As <image-size> is not a sibling of <media> I go to the parent element (..)
and search all descendants (//) for <image-size>. In case there are multiple
<image-size> present I just use the first instance as otherwise the
normalize-space() function would create a run-time error.

Can anyone help me with this? I'm just using version 1, not 2.
