In the absence of XQuery updates (still a draft W3C spec) it's quite a bit
harder to do this in XQuery than in XSLT: you basically have to organize the
recursive walk down the tree copying nodes as you go yourself "by hand". If
you are comfortable with XSLT then this is definitely a task where XSLT
currently wins. It will get a lot easier with XQuery updates.

Subject: [xquery-talk] replacing a node in in-memory XML
I am trying to figure out the best way to replace a node within an in-memory
For example, lets say I have the following fragment in memory.
.and want to replace the services node with the following.
Is there a way of doing this in XQuery?
Obviously I could use an XSL transformation, which would give me the result
I want, but maybe there is a more efficient way using XQuery?
