The problem I think I am having is that my extension function expects a

node-set as a parameter. Is this possible?

Well what kind of string do you want, do you want to serialize the nodes back to XML markup? That has been done, for instance http://lenzconsulting.com/xml-to-string/.

I essentially am trying to do something like this with my extension function:

String extensionFunction(String inputXml)
    MyObject x = new MyObject();
    return x.someComplexOperation();

So I want the extension function to parameter to be an XML string, not an escaped XML string.
