Except that, if you are working in XSLT 1.0 (which is my case), your
variable would be a RTF and that using an extension function to convert
it into a node set would make your transformation less portable...

Maybe that would be a good practice to indicate in the subject if the
question is related to XSLT 1.0 or 2.0: these are two different


Don't you think all these XML schema languages should work together?
