RE:  Up Conversion - Best Practice
One alternative, instead of nesting the <xsl:analyze-string/>s, is to
place them inside of templates in different modes.  Then you can apply
templates in the first mode, store the result in a variable, then apply
templates to that variable in the next mode, and so on.

For example:

<xsl:template match="text()" priority="1">
        <xsl:variable name="step_1">
            <xsl:apply-templates select="." mode="tag_regex1"/>
        <xsl:variable name="step_2">
            <xsl:apply-templates select="$step_1" mode="tag_regex2"/>
        <xsl:variable name="step_3">
            <xsl:apply-templates select="$step_2" mode="tag_regex3"/>
        <xsl:apply-templates select="$step_3" mode="tag_regex4"/>

<xsl:template match="text()" mode="tag_regex1" priority="1">
     <xsl:analyze-string />

<xsl:template match="text()" mode="tag_regex2" priority="1">
     <xsl:analyze-string />

And so on.  You can of course adjust the match attributes to fit your

Hope this helps,

Here is one of my regular expressions which is capturing 13 groups.

<xsl:analyze-string select="$input-file"
\.([0-9]+) ex (.*?)&lt;enr&gt;(.*?)\)([0-9,

So I probably don't want to concatenate all ten into one line!!

Any other suggestions?

Kind regards.
