Just override the identity transformation, for example like this:

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"  xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
 <xsl:output omit-xml-declaration="yes" indent="yes"/>
 <xsl:strip-space elements="*"/>

  <xsl:template match="node()|@*">
    <xsl:copy>
      <xsl:apply-templates select="node()|@*"/>
    </xsl:copy>
  </xsl:template>

  <xsl:template match="span/number"/>
</xsl:stylesheet>

When this transformation is applied on the provided source XML document:


<root>
  <span><number>9.3</number> <code>protected</code> members</span>
  <span><number>9.4</number> miscellaneous members.</span>
< /root>

The wanted, correct result is produced:

<root>
   <span>
      <code>protected</code> members</span>
   <span> miscellaneous members.</span>
</root>
