Indeed! We are only allowed to use XSLT1.0 functions.

However I liked the idea of higher order functions in XSLT, together with
transformation in steps ('pipes' with exslt:node-set()); I might try both
out if time permits me, imho it's a much easier and more generic way of
programming in XSLT.

I think he meant that his problem was a 'school exercise', an XSLT exercise
be more accurate
