RE: char replacement
Not sure I quite understand what you mean by "(Unicode 'xD')". The XML 1.0 spec section 2.11 says that all the CR or CRLF in your source file will be converted to LF. This applies equally to source input and stylesheet XML documents. The only way to actually get the CR preserved in the input or stylesheet document is to include the CR as a character reference in the source XML i.e.
(see XML 1.0 spec section 4.1). So given your example, I'm surprised you found any CR at all. On a more general note, a recursive template it the usual way to handle the sort of replacement you seek. The template processes the first occurrence of the pattern, then, if there are more occurrences, calls itself to process the remainder. Finally the template returns the combination of the portion of the string it has processed and the results of the recursive call.
