Re: [xsl] Does XQuery allow you to modify the XML? (remove elements, modify element values)

XQuery pattern matching can handle this, and indeed has a dedicated following. 
For myself, schooled in both XSLT and XQuery, I really think XSLT identity 
transformation is much easier to deploy—fewer lines of code. I look forward to 
debate on this... I haven’t been happy with how much more work I’ve had to do 
to get pattern matching working. (And probably I haven’t been doing it 
right—but I just returned to XSLT as a better tool for such tasks.)

Hi Folks,

It's been a long time since I've looked at XQuery. 

I need to identify certain elements in XHTML documents and then either remove 
the elements or modify their values. Can XQuery do this? Are there free 
XQuery tools?

XHTML --> XQuery --> XHTML' (a modified version of the input XHTML document)
