Re:  Convert a node-set to a string

Try this:

<xsl:template match="Item">
    <xsl:value-of select="ext:someExtensionFunction(string(.))"/>

<xsl:template match="Item"> <xsl:variable name="item" select="."/>
<xsl:variable name="len" select="ext:someExtensionFunction($item)"/>
<Length><xsl:value-of select="$len"/></Length> </xsl:template>

The problem I think I am having is that my extension function expects
a string, but I am passing it a node-set.  I want to convert the
node-set to a string rather than changing the extension function to
accept a node-set as a parameter.  Is this possible?
