[xsl] WARNING org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: The child axis starting at a text node will never select anything


Subject: [xsl] WARNING org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: The child axis starting at a text node will never select anything

I was getting the following warning when I'd run a transformation within
Arbortext Editor 6.1-F000, which uses the Saxon 9.1.0.5 XSLT transformation
engine:

WARNING org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: The child axis starting at a text node
will never select anything

When I replaced this template

    <xsl:template match="text()" mode="func">
       <xsl:value-of select="."/>
        <xsl:apply-templates mode="func"/>
    </xsl:template>

with this one

    <xsl:template match="*" mode="func">
        <xsl:apply-templates mode="func"/>
    </xsl:template>


the warning went away.

I get the exact same (correct!) output in either case, so I'm wondering what
the warning means.


In case it matters, there are two other "func" mode templates that match
specific element-attribute combinations.

<xsl:template match="change[@change='delete'] | sub-change[@change='delete']"
mode="func"/>

<xsl:template match="change[@change='add']" mode="func">
        <xsl:apply-templates mode="func"/>
   </xsl:template>
