Well, bother.  replace() it is, then.

If there's lots, you might want

<xsl:template match="text()[ancestor::unittittle][normalize-space()]">

instead; the optimizer will _probably_ figure out that you're only
interesting in text nodes with some non-whitespace contents, but it
rarely hurts to provide a hint.
