RE: Generic Element to Attribute String Conversion
Hi, An example of a recursive string chopping template is available here. http://www.biglist.com/lists/xsl-list/archives/200102/msg00893.html Good luck.

Yes, Saxon has a saxon:evaluate() extension for this (given an arbitrary string, evaluate as XPath), and other processors may have their own versions. >>and then spliced together, this is most easily achieved by a recursive >>string-chopping template (or possibly by string-replacement functionality >>in XSLT 2.0). > >I can't use XSL 2 yet.

Try recursive templates, string replacement: "string-chopping" is just the way I described it (though you might get lucky). The FAQ has a section on "General String Replace": see http://www.dpawson.co.uk/xsl/sect2/StringReplace.html.
