I hadn't seen this test case when I replied before.

The regular expression approach can still be used, but it starts to get
tricky.   I'd probably use the regular expressions in Perl to add empty
(milestone) markers, e.g. <start phrase="p3"/> and <end phrase="p3"/>,
where p3 is the id of the phrase in a separate XML document... then I'd
use XSLT or XQuery to sort out the mess afterwards :-)
