Re:  Tokenizing and transforming a CSV file
Hi Mike,
   Thanks for the answer.

The regex below in the xsl:analyze-string instruction doesn't produce
the absolutely correctly output, as I need.

With the CSV I posted, I get following output by using the regex you suggested:

      <field>,"this is a long string, please tokenize me"</field>
      <field>,please tokenize me</field>
      <field>,hi there</field>

I am loosing certain fields in the output.

but you said, "with a regex such as ..". I guess you gave a suggestion
with no assurance of 100% reliability :)
