i used the former instead of the later, i'm having an
error on the for statement in select (not a valid
XPATH 2.0 expression).

i can't use this because the head element is of mixed
content type and using head[substring-before(.,'
')=$strRoman] does not get all the head elements that
has a starting roman numeral identifier because of
cases like this one, <head><hi rend="bold">I.</hi>
Head 1</head>. thats why i'm assigning first a
variable to hold the <xsl:value-of select="."> and
then test the variable for occurences of roman

here's a sample of my input file:

<complexarticle id="COM-00956" entry="A priori/a
posteriori" sortcode="10034" volume="1" page="0">
<mainentry>A priori/a posteriori</mainentry>
<mainentry lang="en">A priori / a
<head><hi rend="bold">I.</hi> Head 1</head>
<head><hi rend="bold">1.</hi></head>
<head><hi rend="bold">2.</hi></head>
<head><hi rend="bold">II.</hi></head>
<contributorgroup><name normal="Willaschek,
Marcus">Marcus Willaschek</name></contributorgroup>
<listbibl><p>Aristotle <hi rend="italic">An.
Post.</hi> 71b/72a</p></listbibl>
<listbibl><p>G.W. Leibniz, <hi rend="italic">Nouveaux
Essais</hi>, VI.2</p></listbibl>

not all head elements with roman numeral occurs in the
first div there are some art that has a div with roman
situated deep into the structure.

I hope i these helps in giving light to my problem.
