Xerces/Xalan are the XML/XSL processors.

$1 is the name of the first parameter. Sorry for not adding those to the code sample... I can't seem to find something that says one way or another if parameter names can start with a number.

So before the coding processes the rest of the text node, I should recurse over the first part of the node. Did I understand your suggestion correctly?

Which XSL system are you using?

> <xsl:when test="$1!=''">

That's a syntax error (I think) as $ has to be followed by a variable name, and
XML names can not start with a digit.

Your problem seems to be somewhere arond here:

>			<xsl:value-of
>select="substring($text,1,$length)" />

You don't want to just put out the string there having found the first
replacement , you need to recurse to do the other replacement
