The function fn:translate does what you need, e.g.,
   fn:translate( "a cab", "abc", "1234" ) returns "1 312"

say I have some XML like this:

need to map the bytes above (which are the same as the values used in the
ASCII encoding of Latin characters) to Devanagari characters when, and only
when, @font eq 'Kruti'.

any easier way to do this?
