Re:  Collect all the truncated fields in an array
David, thanks for the response. 

So how do I define "$strings sequence" in my example. Also each of the values in 
$strings is of different length. 


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]"/> 


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <outputTempVar1>1</outputTempVar1>  ==> Truncated. "12" got truncated to "1"
    <outputVar1>34</outputVar1>    ==> Truncated. "345" got truncated to "34"

No, you don't.

Firstly XSLT doesn't have arrays. As you should have seen by the recent thread 
it really helps if you try to use XSLT terms for things. Your use of "variable" 
as a private terminology for "element" which you have continued in this thread 
more or less ensured that none of the initial answers were relevant to your 

Secondly as explained when you asked this same question last month. You should 
not phrase the result in terms of the processing (which fields got truncated) 
you should phrase it in terms of the input (which fields are long)

Since the question is same as before, answer is too:
