Hmm... to be honest, I'm not sure that XSLT is the tool for this
particular job. Perhaps you can make several passes over the list of
tokens, once to fix the values of x and y for some of them and not for
others, then pass over again to fix the values of others? But I'm not
sure you'd get any better performance from that than you would from
the kind of recursive solution that Mike suggested previously. If it's
that dynamic, then you should probably be using a procedural language,
which is based on doing dynamic kinds of things, rather than a
declarative language, which is based on doing predictable kinds of

BTW, don't worry about David's "mind reading" comment; he's just
trying to be funny.
