breaking string
If you search http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list for tokenize, you
should be able to find examples of Michael's suggestions.

In XSLT 1.0 you have a choice:

(a) write a recursive template that bites off one token each time it's
called using substring-before

(b) use a tokenize() function from a library such as EXSLT

In 2.0 use the built-in tokenize() function, or xsl:analyze-string.
