I have encountered a problem when trying to create a subset of XML Schema files using Saxon9B, version

It has to do with the combination of working with XML Schema files as input files, the document() function and the apply-templates element. I am not trying to do any Schema-aware things; just working with Schema files as input documents.


Here are the 3 files that illustrate the error:



<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>




<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<xsd:schema xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">

    <xsd:element name="Order">


            <xsd:documentation>Description of order</xsd:documentation>






<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="2.0"


    <xsl:template match="/">

        <xsl:apply-templates select="document('test.xsd')//xsd:element"/>




When I run 'java net.sf.saxon.Transform -s:input.xml -xsl:test.xsl -o:output.xsd'

I expect no output at all with this transformation (there is no match for the select in the apply-template).


However, Saxon9B outputs the text in the <xsd:documentation> tag 'Description of order'.

This invalidates the result document; plain text in an XML document invalidates the document and it’s hard to remove with scripts etc.


Is there a work around (setting/parameter?) for the short term and can this be fixed in future versions?


Thank you,
