       hxremove - remove elements from an XML file by means of a CSS selector


       hxremove [ -i ] [ -l language ] selectors


       hxremove  reads  a  well-formed XML document from standard input and writes it to standard
       output without any elements that match  one  of  the  CSS  selectors  that  are  given  as
       argument. For example

           hxremove ol li:first-child

       removes the first li (list item in XHTML) from every ol (ordered list).

       If there are multiple selectors, they must be separated by commas. For example,

           hxremove p + ul, blockquote ol

       removes  all  ul  elements  that  follow  a  p  element  and also all ol elements that are
       descendants of a blockquote element.

       hxremove assumes that class selectors (".foo") refer to an attribute called  "class".  And
       assumes that ID selectors ("#foo") refer to an attribute called "id".

       To handle HTML files, make them well-formed XML first, e.g., with hxnormalize -x.

       Compare with hxselect, which removes everything but the selected elements.


       The following options are supported:

       -i        Match case-insensitively. Useful for HTML and some other SGML-based languages.

       -l language
                 Sets  the  default  language,  in case the root element doesn't have an xml:lang
                 attribute (default: none). Example: -l en


       The following operand is supported:

              One or more  comma-separated  selectors.  Most  selectors  from  CSS  level  3  are


       asc2xml(1), xml2asc(1), hxnormalize(1), hxselect(1), UTF-8 (RFC 2279)
