There’s heavy XML, XSD, XPath lingo in this post. I’ll try to explain the lingo w/o going deep into it. I use the lingo with the intent that in case you search over the internet, you get more accurate hits

For those in a hurry
If ASSIGN is copying the attributes along with the value of the element and you do not want the attributes, the use text() function. If ASSIGN is removing the existing attributes in the TO element, then you need to save off the attributes and then reassign them back.
