Hi Mark,

There's no way to turn an RTF into a node set without an extension
function if you have a compliant XSLT 1.0 processor.  As far as I
know, Saxon still implements the "XSLT 1.1" Working Draft, and allows
automatic conversion from RTF to node set.  This is something that
will probably be formally introduced to XSLT in XSLT 2.0.

Part of the point of the EXSLT initiative is to standardise on a
namespace for the node-set() function (i.e. make it non-proprietary),
so that you can use it without limiting yourself to a particular
processor. Have a look at http://www.exslt.org/common/.
