Ok, I don't know much about collations in this context.  What I'm
doing now is a string replace function in the xslt like:
<xsl:function name="x:replace">
<xsl:param name="string"/><xsl:param name="list"/>
<xsl:value-of select="
then $string

And so using it like:

<xsl:for-each-group select="//div[@type='psalm']//w"
group-by="substring(x:replace(lower-case(.), ('y', 'i', 'u','v',
'&#x00FE;', 'th', '&#x021D;', '3', '&amp;', '', ';', '')),1,1)">

Is there a simpler and/or better way to do this using saxon?
