Hello all, I've got what I think is a simple problem but I can't find a

I am generating a RSS file and summarising the first 200 characters for
the output.

The XML source <content> element contains only text (xs:string).

The XSL is:


This can often cause words to become truncated at the end. I would much
rather have a way to output say the first 30 words, rather than the
