It's interesting that you can build a sequence of integers in XPath
2.0 with the 'to' operator, but not a sequence of characters. For this
situation, it would be really nice to be able to do:

  <xsl:for-each select="'a' to 'z'">

I suppose the other possibility would be tokenize function so you
could do:

  <xsl:for-each select="tokenize('abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz', '')">

to achieve the same thing (although a little more laboriously).
