You can't create entities using XSLT because they aren't part of the data

I'm not sure what you mean by "translating a string into an element".
Perhaps you mean that you want to markup the input text "bread and butter
and jam" as "bread <and/> butter <and/> jam"?

That kind of thing is done using recursive templates: see under "replace" in
the FAQ.
