Hi all,

Here is a fun one I thought I could share

I have a nicely nested XML (a bit TEI like)
and markers for page breaks can happen everywhere in the document (as empty elements)

Now I want to break the document per page, reconstructing the structure
So in a first step, I want to isolate the pagebreak to the highest level


to become


Bearing in mind I need a generic solution
and pagebreaks can happen at every level

Any thoughts?
I am not looking for code, just curious on how people would attack this

Use "<<" and ">>" to determine those elements that are before, after and in-between page breaks, then recreate the document structure up to those points.

Are we not allowed to post code for this? :{)} It sounds like fun. It might come in handy for my PSMI construct.
