InString filter in XSL

Subject: InString filter in XSL

I am struggling with the following problem:

<el att="aa, bb, cc">I want to select this</el>
<el att="bb, cc">Or I want to select this</el>
<el att="aa, cc">Or maybe I want to select this</el>

I want to select nodes based on the value of att: Either those containing
'aa', or 'bb', or 'cc', regardless of the other surrounding values, i.e. if
I check for 'aa', I'd like to get the first and last, in the case of 'bb'
the first and second, etc.

Is there an easy way to do this in XSL?
I am preparing this for IE5, but ideally would like this to stay compatible
with the latest draft.

All the best,
