I assumed HTML where the P element cannot be a child of itself, and used ancestor::p to have a starting point.

I didn't do this, I used instead two modes to differentiate between 'before' and 'after'. My solution is probably more resource intensive.
In addition, in the midst of it all, you have the split of the text itself. I did it by using a predicate for testing if it is the right string and then use either the before or after bit.
"Copy" here is in the sense of doing an <xsl:copy> and a recursive
Indeed. In my case: the text node and node comparison against that node.
I assumed the marker to be text()[contains(., 'yourstring')]
If there are multiple split points, do the above to split into two, then
ah, didn't think of that. If you need that, you'll have to modify my code a bit.
After you have something, I reckon it is best to put it into some function, it will be worthwile if you can simply use it with copy-of or something and you can more easily reuse functions then templates (imho).
