GMail is mangling this a bit, so let me make sure I'm guessing right.
For each token delimited by spaces you want to to create a new element
containing the token and the contents of the sep attribute.

The first part (splitting the string) is an faq:

Second part would merely be <xsl:value-of select="@sep" />

Of course, a more interesting variation is using sep to indicate the

So if I had <textarea sep=",">10,20,30,40,50</textarea>
I'd get something like <datanum>10</datanum><datanum>20</datanum>.

That's just a variation of the faq that should be pretty easy to
