Re: Converting a string to Uppercase or Lowercase with
or perhaps "manage" your namespaces:
Not really ... I've used entities for namespace URI strings when a vocabulary changes its URI but the transformation of the elements is unchanged: keep a master copy of the stylesheet in a source code control system, deploy copies to two directories, use parameter entities to define general entities with the namespace URI string, and then each stylesheet supports a different version of the URI string.
There were other nuances that allowed me to address the differences between vocabularies, but that was the gist.
I gather from other comments that XML syntactic features would rather be ignored than employed in an XSLT stylesheet. My background is SGML so not only do I not have an aversion to the syntactic constructs, I tend to make use of them when I can.
