I have an xml feed that contains URL's in one element tag that need to be seperated to fit into my target document. it looks like this:

<pictures>http://www.altinkumdreamhomes.co.uk/images/Properties/Property41/Pictures/Picture296.jpg; http://www.altinkumdreamhomes.co.uk/images/Properties/Property41/Pictures/Picture297.jpg; http://www.altinkumdreamhomes.co.uk/images/Properties/Property41/Pictures/Picture298.jpg; http://www.altinkumdreamhomes.co.uk/images/Properties/Property41/Pictures/Picture299.jpg; http://www.altinkumdreamhomes.co.uk/images/Properties/Property41/Pictures/Picture300.jpg; http://www.altinkumdreamhomes.co.uk/images/Properties/Property41/Pictures/Picture301.jpg; http://www.altinkumdreamhomes.co.uk/images/Properties/Property41/Pictures/Picture302.jpg</pictures>

my target document looks like this:

Hi Carl,
you can use a named template that calls substring-before to process one URL, then calls itself with the result of substring-after to process the rest of the list.

Hope this helps,
Alberto
