Ibm finally getting around to XSLT 2.0 and having fun with grouping and

But Ibm stymied on this: I need to tokenize a string that may span
multiple text nodes or elements.  The tokenize() function wonbt take a
sequence of more than one as its first argument, and I canbt figure out
how to concatenate the values of the nodes in the set in situ (Ibve even
tried a FLWR expression!).

 tokenize( current-group()[position() > 1], '\s*;\s*' )

is what I have right now.  Ibve tried wrapping the sequence in concat()
(which wants more than one argument), in string-join(), and a FLWR that
just resulted in a sequence of strings rather than a concatenation.


Thanks in advance,
