Hi, Dimitre!

Thank you very much for the pointer. I've downloaded the FXSL scripts for Xalan, which is what I'm using,
and I've tried to change the code in the example you cite so that it does what I'm hoping to accomplish.
However, I seem to be doing something wrong, because I'm getting a java "Out of Memory" error.

Here's the relevant portion of my spreadsheet:

<xsl:import href="/home/loschen/bin/xslt/fxsl/str-map.xsl" />
<xsl:variable name="vCaps" select="'ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ'" />
<myMark:myMark />
<xsl:template match="myMark:*">
<xsl:param name="arg1" />
<xsl:when test="contains($vCaps, $arg1)">
<span class="fullsize"><xsl:value-of select="$arg1" /></span>
<xsl:value-of select="$arg1" />

<xsl:template match="sc">
<xsl:variable name="vCapsSpanned">
<xsl:call-template name="str-map">
<xsl:with-param name="pFun" select="document('')/*/myMark:*[1]" />
<xsl:with-param name="pStr" select="./text()" />
<span class="smallcap"><xsl:copy-of select="translate($vCapsSpanned,'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz','ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ')" /></span>

The first few times I tried this, I got references to "idx:entry" which is an element (and namespace) which I'm not even
currently using -- it's an artifact from an earlier version of my code. I'm running the script on a file I've done before, so I
know there should have been no calls to idx:entry. I commented out the sections of the stylesheet that referred to that
and those errors went away, but I'm still getting a java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: null at an unknown location. Can you
(or anybody) see what I've done wrong? Thanks!

The "str-map" template from FXSL does exactly this. For a recent example do have a look at:
