Re:  XSL | index-of()
Hi Janine,
    Here's the stylesheet that works,

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl=""
                         exclude-result-prefixes="xs fn"

    <xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes"/>

    <xsl:template match="all">
          <xsl:for-each select="documents/doc[fn:isIncludeDoc(.)]">
             <doc no="{@no}"><xsl:value-of
select="substring-before(substring-after(., '('), ')')"/></doc>

    <xsl:function name="fn:isIncludeDoc" as="xs:boolean">
       <xsl:param name="doc" as="element(doc)"/>

       <xsl:sequence select="some $abbr in $doc/../../abbreviations/abbr
satisfies contains($doc, concat('(', $abbr, ')'))"/>
