xsl all occurences
You can eliminate the need to loop for upper case and lower case by
translating all items to either up or lower case before the loop.

Hello !

I am looking for a way to list all occurences of a given element in a
file given the first or first two letters. I want that because i need a
and have a lot of items.

What i do for now is doing a for-each select="item[starts-with(name,'a')]"
with a through z, A through Z and a cumbersome last for-each with many 'and
starts-with' which is ugly. And slow.

There MUST be another, more efficient, more elegant, cleaner way of doing
that !
But sadly i can't seem to find the idea how... If you have any idea, feel
to help !
