In a declarative program you should aim to describe your output in terms of the input, not in terms of the processing steps used earlier.
So here you want to output two things, a list of strings all truncated to at most $n, and a list of strings that were longer than $n, so if $strings is your sequence of strings and $n is the limit on length
result: <xsl:value-of select="for $s in $strings return substring($s,1,$n)"/>
these were truncated: <xsl:value-of select="$strings[string-length(.) gt $n]"/>
