Sometime back, I had written a combination generator in Java. The
programs are available at:   (this is the starting point,
and uses the 2nd file below)

If you find it interesting, you could adapt it in XSLT (perhaps use it
via extension mechanism).

I'm searching for hours for a solution to my problem, but didn't find a
solution ...

It's about a spellchecker. When searching for an experssion with say N words,
I want to list every combinations of suggested words.
I get the list of suggested words in an xml file, if the word exists (is well
spelled) than I don't get any suggestions for it, if not I get as many
suggestions as there are in the "spell base" .
The xml file could look like that for example :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<spellchecker date="Wed Jun 27 17:13:12 CEST 2007">
       <word valeur="a" exist="false">
               <suggest value="a1"/>
               <suggest value="a2"/>
               <suggest value="a3"/>
               <suggest value="a4"/>
               <suggest value="a5"/>

<word value="b" exist="true"></word>

       <word value="c" exist="false">
               <suggest value="c1"/>
               <suggest value="c2"/>
               <suggest value="c3"/>
               <suggest value="c4"/>
               <suggest value="c5"/>

       <word value="d" exist="false">
               <suggest value="d1"/>
               <suggest value="d2"/>
               <suggest value="d3"/>

So what I like for result is :
a1 *b* c1 d1
a1 *b* c1 d2
a1 *b* c1 d3

a1 *b* c2 d1
a1 *b* c2 d2
a1 *b* c2 d3

a1 *b* c3 d1
a1 *b* c3 d2
a1 *b* c3 d3

a2 *b* c1 d1
a2 *b* c1 d2
a2 *b* c1 d3

a2 *b* c2 d1
a2 *b* c2 d2
a2 *b* c2 d3

a2 *b* c3 d1
a2 *b* c3 d2
a2 *b* c3 d3

Any idea of an xslt able to do that or any suggestions would be really
welcome !
