The replace element

This action replaces an instance data node with another, a complement of  

Common Attributes: Common, Events, Action Common, Single Item Binding

Special Attribute:

      Required expression giving an item which will replace the Single Item  

Content: EMPTY.

The Single Item Binding is evaluated to give the target node; if it does
not select an instance data node, or the instance data node or its parent  
is readonly,
the action has no effect.

The with attribute is evaluated in the Element Evaluation Context to give  
an item; the
first-item rule is applied if necessary. If the item is an atomic value, a  
text node is created from it.

If there is a node type conflict between the source node and the target  
(for example, trying to replace an attribute with an element), an  
xforms-action-error event with an error-type of replace-with is  
dispatched, and the action has no further effect.

The target node is replaced with the source node (including its entire  
subtree), and the xforms-replace event is dispatched with appropriate  
context information to the instance containing the target node.


<replace ref="address" with="contact/address[@type='home']"/>
