    I was going to comment in my first reply that I was 
    surprised to see you (well known for being pleased about 
    all the schema stuff added to
    XSLT) using casting to XSD types rather than using regexp handling.
    Mike just said regexp are likely to be more efficient as well...

I had little choice, other than escaping to java.

<ientry3><contract>enough</contract>, <contract>en</contract>,
<contract>in</contract>, 8.4.22-24</ientry3>

So I was down to template matching on text()[last()]
then regexing, which still leaves me the comma's interspersed.

 <xsl:template match="text()[last()]" mode="idx">
   <xsl:analyze-string select="." regex="[0-9.\-]+"  flags="m">
       <xsl:if test="not(normalize-space(.) = ',')">
select="."/></xsl:non-matching-substring> </xsl:analyze-string>

V. messy. And I've still to turn these into idrefs :-)

And what's worse, its wordperfect 9 to blame.
 Unfortunately, its a wp which has good font support and hacks xml.
