XSL question

Is there a way to copy a node in source file to result file? I am using XSL to transform a source XML to a result XML. Most of my source nodes can be used as result nodes. Basically, I just remove some unrelated nodes and build the result tree. So I hope I can copy useful nodes direclty. Right now, I have to use template to copy tags, attributes, and texts one by one. I hope there is a function called copyNodeRecursively() to copy a node recursively for me. Because the child nodes of a node may change and templates are not dynamic, I really need this kind of function. Does it exit?

You can use xsl:copy-of to do a deep (recursive) copy.
Hope this helps.

Thank you so much. I tried copy-of and it works. I do appreciate your help.
