Hi Ben,
This is where it gets tricky i think i was able to achieve this but i had a problem which even your stylesheet gives we need only that <emp> element which is required the other one should be omited
means for a string "scott,john," the result should be

<employee group="1">
<employee group="3">

Its going to make your life easier if you have an input string:
"scott,john," (i.e. ending on a comma).

This should do the job fairly efficiently.

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://,,,";>

<xsl:parameter name="searchList"/>

<xsl:template match="/">
	<xsl:apply-templates />

<xsl:template match="ROOT">
	<ROOT><xsl:apply-templates /></ROOT>

<xsl:template match="employee">
	<xsl:if test="contains($searchList, concat(emp/text(), ','))">
		<employee group="{@group}">

<xsl:template match="wing">
	<xsl:copy-of select="."/>

<xsl:template name="emp">
	<xsl:if test="contains($searchList, concat(text(), ','))">
		<xsl:copy-of select="."/>



Hmmm. There is probably a more elegant way using xsl:copy-of, but I
can't think of it offhand...

[I haven't even checked this as being wellformed, but it should work]
