Re: [xsl] Filtering new tags using XSL

If the newly added <data> elements are exactly same like,

<data name="LBL_MM">

then I would say, to implement your requirement is impossible. There
is no way to tell the stylesheet, that what all <data> elements are

If the <data> element's schema has some provision of the information,
like who added the information or perhaps a timestamp, then you could
filter information based on this attribute/element.
