Hip hei!

I don't undestand that quarentee part of your question, but this

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> 
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"

<xsl:template match="@*|node()">
    <xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()"/>

<xsl:template match="foo">
  <xsl:variable name="text"
select="normalize-space(preceding::text()[normalize-space() != ''][1])" />
    <xsl:when test="substring($text, string-length($text)) =


will do the capitalization - just retrive the first preceding text node that
is not whitespace, normalize that, and then test if the last character is a
period. Hope this helps,
