Does xmlspy do xpath2? (Also saxon8.2 is implementing an older draft of
xslt2, 8.4 implements the current draft)

Note also that the second [1] is not doing anything here


not(contains(text()[1],',')) is a sequence of exactly one boolean value,
true or false so [1] is selecting the first item from a sequence of one.

Also you've dropped (.| from the beginning of the expression so uou are
just testing preceding siblings, not the current node, in which case you
can more simply write

Hmm 99 times out of 100 I'd believe saxon (especially if 8.4 gives the
same result) Can you make a smaller example (6 or 7 line) and a small
complete stylesheet that does the wrong thing? and post the input and
output you get?
