The aim is to surround occurences of <row> - tags with a <table> - tag. I've done this with "good" XSL, what appears to be real slow, and with a "bad" version, which inserts tags as <xsl:text>.
You didn't show your "good" version, but the standard approach here would be the identity template with a specific template for the <row> element (not tag!)
<xsl:template match="@*|node()"> <xsl:copy> <xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()"/> </ </
<xsl:template match="row"> <table> <xsl:apply-templates/> </table> </
I'm pretty confident that would be faster (or at least just-as-fast) as your current fastest solution.
(your "bad" version is really common amongst casual XSLT'ers when they get stuck, by the way)
