Screen-Cast: Removing Elements in Recursive Pure Functional Transforms (RPFT) of XML

Return to the RPFT Screen-Cast SeriesThis is the sixteenth screen-cast in a series on writing Recursive Pure Functional Transformations (RPFT) of XML. In this screen-cast, we discuss the selective elimination of elements from the newly cloned XML tree. We are, in effect, ‘removing’ an element from the original XML tree in the newly created XML tree.

To demonstrate this scenario, I remove proofing marks from a WordprocessingML document. I also show removal of comments using this approach.
