so you and Sebastian aren't going to allow sed talks at your XSL bash

Actually there was a more or less serious point about my non-xsl answer.
XSL is quite a nice language for transforming structured documents, but
it is absolutely completely hopeless at infering structure from plain

In that case you can of course do it with a recursive template but
the contortions needed to do anything more complicated than your example
are not really worth it (except of course for the perfectly reasonable
reason of answering questions to avoid real work).

I think you're an Omnimark person, and in Omnimark-speak XSL doesn't
UP TRANSLATE. (Or at least, it isn't designed for doing that).

To add structure to plain text you basically need regexp support
either in the "modem noise" style of sed (or perl, to be more trendy)
or the more readable style of omnimark.

Or XSLT2 (perhaps:-)
