the current xslt to strip the "/b." and "/b0."

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
    <xsl:template match="@*|node()">
    <xsl:copy>
            <xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()" />
        </xsl:copy>
    </xsl:template>
    <xsl:template match="Correspondance/Ledger/Section[@type='Income']">
        <Income><xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()" /></Income>
    </xsl:template>
   <xsl:template match="Correspondance/Ledger/Section[@type='Expense']">
        <Expense><xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()" /></Expense>
    </xsl:template>
<xsl:template match="Correspondance/Ledger/Section[@type='Deduction']">
        <Deduction><xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()" /></Deduction>
    </xsl:template>
<xsl:template match="Correspondance/BenefitsDetails/Category[@type='others']">
        <others><xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()" /></others>
</xsl:template>
  <xsl:template match="Correspondance/BenefitsDetails/Category[@type='rejection']">
        <rejection><xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()" /></rejection>
</xsl:template>
     <xsl:template match="Person/Name">
        <xsl:copy>
            <xsl:call-template name="strip-name">
                <xsl:with-param name="str" select="."></xsl:with-param>
            </xsl:call-template>
        </xsl:copy>
    </xsl:template>
    
    <xsl:template match="Amount/@Name">
        <xsl:attribute name="Name">
            <xsl:call-template name="strip-name">
                <xsl:with-param name="str" select="."></xsl:with-param>
            </xsl:call-template>
        </xsl:attribute>
    </xsl:template>
   
    <xsl:template name="strip-name">
        <xsl:param name="str"/>
        <xsl:value-of select="substring-before(substring-after($str, '\b.'), '\b0.')"/>
    </xsl:template>
   
</xsl:stylesheet>

Open in new window


this works fine if there are  "/b." and "/b0." , but these re not always there in the xml, the current xslt strps the whole Name if the "/b." and "/b0." are not present , how d i check if these "/b." and "/b0. are present in the specific tags only then strip them  else do nothing.

make a test in the template strip-name

    <xsl:template name="strip-name">
        <xsl:param name="str"/>
        <xsl:choose>
            <xsl:when test="starts-with(normalize-space($str), '\b.') and contains($str, '\b0.') ">
                <xsl:value-of select="substring-before(substring-after($str, '\b.'), '\b0.')"/>
            </xsl:when>
            <xsl:otherwise>
                <xsl:value-of select="$str"/>
            </xsl:otherwise>
        </xsl:choose>
