count commas in a string
Hi Mike,

you can count the commas in a string and decide on this count:

<xsl:template match="PERSNAME">
        <xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
        <xsl:variable name="count-of-commas" select="string-length(.) -
string-length(translate(. , ',' , ''))"/>
            <xsl:when test="$count-of-commas = 1">
                <xsl:value-of select="substring-after(., ',')"/>
                <xsl:value-of select="substring-before(., ',')"/>
                <xsl:value-of select="substring-before(substring-after(.,
','), ',')"/>
                <xsl:value-of select="substring-before(., ',')"/>
                <xsl:value-of select="substring-after(substring-after(.,
','), ',')"/>

Hope this helps,
