You imply that <title/> is *always* surrounded by (). I guess you have some other stylesheet for this document which leaves them in? In which case you might find it much easier to either a) leave them out of the document altogether, and add them back in the other stylesheet. b) instead of writing () invent an element to do the same job, i.e. write <parenthesis><title>...</title></parenthesis> In other words, check your design: is the () really text, or is it some kind of markup? If the latter, revisit the design if you can. Difficult programming tasks are often the result of imperfect design. This seems to be particularly true of XML+XSLT for some reason.
