I was thinking that, too, Wendell, but some quick testing revealed a
problem. Because translate substitutes only one character, the semi-colon
is replaced with a comma but no space. To get a space after each comma
requires a different approach. I suppose a recursive template that uses
substring functions would be the 1.0 solution. I think the 2.0 solution
would be to tokenize the input string and then reassemble with a for-each
on the tokens, adding the comma and space along the way.

Oh, I didn't notice the space! Good catch -- yes, that's somewhat harder.

XSLT 2.0 is much better at this sort of thing.
