   A slightly less expensive way to do this is to pass the array in as a
   string of XML-like data and then serialize it into a node-set using
   node-set function particular to your processor.  Then you can process
   just like any other node-set.

   Best of luck!


If you passed in a string with XML syntax you'd want a parse extension
function not a node-set() (ie the opposite of serialization) Saxon for
example offers such a function.

On the other hand, if called from an API ratherthan from a command line,
most XSLT engines will allow you to pass in a node set as a parameter so
no extension function should be needed.
