 Dynamically Converting text within an element to xml
Hi,

Given input such as the following within the "text" element in a
larger xml document currently being processed by an XSL file:

<text>
[ZZ] [XX] [YY] X [/YY] [YY] Y [/YY] [/XX] [/ZZ]
</text>

Is it possible to dynamically replace the [ ]  with < > to output the
text as xml nodes in the output document?
<text>
<ZZ><XX><YY>X</YY><YY>Y</YY></XX></ZZ>
</text>

What is making this difficult for me is that the text input could come
in different structures with other psuedo tags for example a  [[BB]]
or some other that may not be expected and so ideally it would be nice
to convert the [[ to < and the ]] to > with a find and replace however
getting the XSLT script to recognize this converted string as XML
nodes I can't seem to find a way to do.


Regards
