Topic: XFDF/XML Problems using XSL
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 86312

We have some problems with xfdf-exports.
After exporting our form-data to xfdf, we renamed the file from .xfdf to .xml to use and process the file with XMLSPY.
I wrote a XSL stylesheet to create a textfile including all data from the xfdf/xml file.
The main problem is the xfdf-tag on top of the xfdf/xml file.
the xfdf tag looks like this:

As long as i leave this tag (including the closing xfdf tag at the bottom of the file) untouched, i cannot extract the data correctly. I always get two different results - first: no data output and second: all data at once, but not using the style i defined in my stylesheet.
When the xfdf tag is manually deleted (inclunding the closing xfdf tag), i can extract and style the data output as i want.

Now I need to know, what the xfdf tag is for and what i can do to use it, delete it (not manually) or to ignore it.
Our xfdf-files (renamed to .xml files) will be processed automatically, so that the deletion of the xfdf tag (if necessary) cannot be done manually (due to the huge amount of files).

Maybe someone has an idea and give me a hint...
