Re: [xsl] How to check an element's type against an XSD simpleType and skip that element if it does not conform to the simpleType?

If the input hasn't been validated you can just get the text content of

But **bk:ISBN-type** is a simpleType defined in the XML Schema; so I have to 
import the XML Schema:

     <xsl:import-schema namespace="https://www.books.org";
         schema-location="BookStore.xsd"/>

But then I am back to the problem of the XSLT processor insisting on validating 
all of my XML document.

Is there a way to get access to the simpleType, ISBN-type, without importing 
the XML Schema?

With AltovaXML for instance I think a document is only being validated if it has the xsi:schemaLocation attribute linking to a schema. For the example I posted where I took your schema I am able to use the schema through xsl:import-schema while not validating the complete input document.

Perhaps Saxon allows a similir configuration.
