This stylesheet


   <xsl:output indent="yes"/>

   <xsl:template match="@* | node()">
       <xsl:apply-templates select="@* | node()"/>

   <xsl:template match="p">
       <xsl:variable name="this" select="."/>
       <xsl:variable name="t" select="text()[1]"/>
       <xsl:analyze-string select="$t" regex="(.*) b (.*)">
           <term><xsl:value-of select="regex-group(1)"/></term>
             <xsl:value-of select="regex-group(2)"/>
             <xsl:apply-templates select="$t/following-sibling::node()"/>
           <xsl:apply-templates select="$this/node()"/>
