Re:  General algorithm for finding nodes between PIs
Hi David,

That works well, except I had to change this:

<xsl:when test="following-sibling::node()[1]/self::* and
starts-with(.,'Condstart ')">

to this:

<xsl:when test="following-sibling::node()[1] and starts-with(.,'Condstart

Thank you all for the help.

or sometimes it's easier with xslt- style sibling recursion rather then using

Not sure I have all the cases but

 <p><?Fm Condstart USB?>If you need this, do that.<?Fm Condend USB?>text<?Fm
Condstart foo?>Some text<?Fm Condend foo?>another text</p>

 <p><?Fm Condstart USB?><span>If you need</span>  <span>this, do
that.</span><?Fm Condend USB?>text<?Fm  Condstart foo?>Some text<?Fm Condend
foo?><span>another text</span></p> </x>

comes out as

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><x>  <p platform="USB">If you need this,
do that.textSome textanother text</p>

 <p><span platform="USB">If you need</span>  <span platform="USB">this, do
that.</span>textSome text<span>another text</span></p> </x>
