Yes, although  as you may guess, the xslt I have in mind isn't exctly
being produced "by hand". It would mean stepping through each sequence
and testing at runtime whether the generated item  was atomic and if so
stick it in a text node. I think I'll stick with the empty xsl:text
thanks, especially as you say that's what saxon is doing.
