Hi David...thanks for your reply.

I gave this a go:

<xsl:when test="($tabName[substring-before(@name,'::')]='Home')">home</xsl:when>

It processed, but the output was still wrong, I'm still getting
"detachFocus" instead of "home"

in xslt2 you could use regular expressions, in 1.0 just some combination of substring-before = and contains will work, depending on what you cases are

contains(@name('Home::') might work, that would match lkjhllHome::as
well but if your input is in a regular form and you are just trying to
distinguish Home::foo Home::bar and Work:foo then it's enough
starts-with(substring-before(@name,'::'),'Home') is true for
Home::foo and HomeOffice::foo
