Sorry, I should say that I need 1.0 if possible.
When using XSLT 1.0 I've done this by creating a key table assigning to all text nodes the generated identifier of the trigger element to which the text nodes belong.
Then when you encounter a trigger element you can retrieve all of the text nodes associated with that element.
This also works in XSLT 2.0, but without any examples from you illustrating various combinations or scenarios of the kinds of text aggregation you need, it is impossible for any volunteer on the list to help you in a substantial way.
Please provide a few samples of your input with their respective desired output for each.
p.s. be careful using XSLT 1.0 in Microsoft IE ... the white-space-only text node between two elements will be unavailable in the data model of the document and you won't know that it was ignored by their XSLT processor
