Extract xsi:nil="true"


I would like to extract the xsi:nil="true" in the xml output...

I have the following sample of xml


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xml catalog="DD" date="13/08/2012" time="14:48:40" version="1.1">
<num id="Number" prec="4"/>
<str id="cc" len="4"/>
<num id="vv" prec="4"/>
<num id="bb" prec="4"/>
<num id="Number">1</num>
<str id="cc">aaaa</str>
<num id="Number">2</num>
<str id="vv">vvvv</str>
<num id="Number">3</num>
<str id="bb">uuuu</str>

The following part is from xsl:

<xsl:if test="Number">

<xsl:element name="AAA" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xsi:nil="true">
<xsl:value-of select=".">...</xsl:value-of>

The result:


The expected result:

<AAA xsi:nil="true"></AAA>

Your help will be valuable...

Thank you in advance
