When you say "concatenate" them, do you mean you want them contiguous in the
output with no newlines intervening, like this?

|This is a||new|| sentance.|

If so, then all you have to do is not put in those newlines.  At present
what you see as "|" is actually a text node in your stylesheet that consists
of a newline character plus a bunch of spaces plus a | character.  Try using
this line instead:

  <xsl:text>|<xsl:text/><xsl:value-of select="."/>|<br/>

David, your code just returns "This is a" - nothing mroe. You
code and my best effort is blw;

<xsl:template match="item">
  <xsl:variable name="x">
     <xsl:value-of select="text()|ver[@id=$ver]"/>
<xsl:value-of select="$x"/><br/><br/>

  <xsl:for-each select="//text()[parent::*/@id='1' or not(parent::*/@id)]">
  |<xsl:value-of select="."/>|<br/>

<item>This is a<ver id="0">n old</ver> <ver id="1">new</ver> 

This is a    <- David

|This is a|  <-
|new|        <- my best so far
| sentance.| <-

How can I concatenate my three pieces?

"This is a new sentance."

Having trouble doing it with string() which should concat.
