xsl string manipulation substring
substring-after(substring-after(str,'.'),'.') = 'ghi'
substring-before(value,concat('.',substring-after(substring-after(value,'.'),
'.')))
= 'abc.def'

The second line fails if the last term is not unique, however.

I guess you could do:

substring(str,1,string-length(str)-string-length(substring-after(substring-af
ter(str,'.'),'.'))
- 1)
