Hi,

I want to transform a flat XML document to a XML document with
nested elements. Basically I have a solution for my case. But I would
like to know whether it is a good (the 'right') approach, since
grouping sometimes still gets my brain twisted.

Source:

<flat> <A/> <B/> <C/> <D/> <E/> <F/> <G/> <D/> <E/> <F/> <G/> <H/>
<I/> </flat>


Desired output:


<structured> <A/> <B/> <C/> <D> <E> <F/> <G/> </E> </D> <D> <E> <F/>
<G/> </E> </D> <H/> <I/> </structured>





Your posted code looks perhaps OK but really it's impossible to comment,
your question gives no indication of the intended criteria for grouping
or not grouping elements, so the only indication of the intended
grouping is your stylesheet and so all we can say is that that does what
it does, can't say if it does what it was intended to do as the
intention isn't clear.
