In the Shulchan Aruch (YD 351), the Mechebar writes that a man is buried in a talit with tzitzit, and the Rema adds that the tzitzit are made posul. Some googling (as well as checking with my local chevra kadisha), reveals that the Rema's position is a common practice, at least for Ashkenazim. What about Sephardim? Do they generally follow the Rema's opinion as well, or do they leave the tzitzit intact?
