Re: [xsl] merging generic elements in a parent-child relationship

This may be too generic, it doesn't hard code any element names 
but it doesn't use a parameter to limit them either, if you need to
paramaterise it you may need to replace * by *[contains($param,name()]
or some such, but this produces teh specified output on teh test file
