No, XSLT doesn't support this kind of information retrieval.
- it doesn't support building free text indexes
- it doesn't recognize the concept of a document collection
- it doesn't have query operators to do things like phrase and proximity
- it can only select a node-set that matches a query precisely, not rank
nodes according to the closeness of match.
