Ah yes, I forgot about that one.

This was exactly what I was after. Unfortunately I can't use XSLT2, so this worked fine. Thanks for your help, and thanks also to Andrew for your ideas.

One slightly related question, is it possible to remove whitespace ( returns and spaces ) from before and after the text. So in this line from above :

<xsl:value-of select="."/>

The XML actually looks like this :

<![CDATA[Table 1::Number1 & Custom 1 & External ( "Menu- Version"; "" ) & <Function Missing>]]>

So, the data comes with a lot of extra whitespace. I was able to filter it on import when I was getting one node at a time after the transform (it's an import into a DB), but now that I'm getting mutliple nodes in one step, it's all coming in between each block and makes it harder to filter.
