Description Michael Kay 2012-07-10 13:28:33 UTC
The xsl:copy instruction is defined to ignore the on-empty attribute when the node being copied is an attribute node. Since xsl:attribute has an on-empty attribute, it would make more sense to take account of it. Indeed, it makes more sense to take note of on-empty when copying comments, PIs, and text nodes than to ignore it.
