        Yes, but your question should be directed to xsl list
        at Mulberrytech.com

        That way, others would learn from any answers.

          yes of course. copy just copies a single node to the result tree.
          copy-of copies a complete node tree to the result tree.

          BTW, pure XSLT questions are better off being asked on an XSLT list such
          as the Mulberry list.

            XSLT and XPath questions would be better posted to the following list:

            http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list

            There are a number of subscribers who would enthusiastically respond
            to such questions.

            There is also an *excellent* XSLT FAQ at:

            http://www.dpawson.co.uk

            and XML FAQ at:

            <xsl:copy-of> is a "deep copy" copying all addressed nodes and their
            descendants down to the leaves of the XPath node tree.

            <xsl:copy> is a "shallow copy" copying only the current node.

            I hope this helps.
