Is there a function or combination of functions in XSLT that will help in URL encoding? I have blank spaces in a string that is part of a URL and I want to escape them with '%20'. The translate function doesn't work here because it is doing character substitution, not string substitution.
Ther is no built-in function, but there are various solutions available as libraries. Check out EXSLT and Dimitre Novatchevs FXSL. The XSLT FAQ has also hints, for example look at http://www.dpawson.co.uk/xsl/sect2/replace.html#d59e39
