What would be useful in quite a lot of situations is
so you'd be able to do 
<xsl:for-each select=97 to 122">

   It's interesting that you can build a sequence of integers in XPath
   2.0 with the 'to' operator, but not a sequence of characters. For this
   situation, it would be really nice to be able to do:

     <xsl:for-each select="'a' to 'z'">

   I suppose the other possibility would be tokenize function so you
   could do:

     <xsl:for-each select="tokenize('abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz', '')">

   to achieve the same thing (although a little more laboriously).
