RE: tokenize() a string and then create a node-set
Hi, Something like this should work. This assumes there are at least 2 substrings in $string. <xsl:variable name="splitName" select="tokenize($string,' ')" /> <firstname><xsl:value-of select="$splitName" /></firstname> <lastname><xsl:value-of select="$splitName[last()]" /></lastname> <xsl:choose> <xsl:when test="count($splitName) gt 2" > <midname><xsl:value-of select="for $c in (2 to last()-1) return $splitName[$c]" /></midname> </xsl:when> <xsl:otherwise> <midname /> </xsl:otherwise> </xsl:choose> This is not tested. I forget if you'll get spaces between midname substrings, but I think so. If not, you can "return ($splitName[$c],' ')".

Note, could create a called-template plus a user defined function(s) to do the following but want to see if there is an easier/other way to do it. I want to take a string containing a person's name and break it apart based on a space. Then parse the result as follows. If position is first then <firstname>, if position is last then <lastname> else <midname>. Can this be done using a <for-each select="tokenize($string, ' ')"> with a <choose>|<if> statement inside? Any ideas will be greatly appreciated. Marijan Madunic
