Recursive string replace in XSLT 2.0

 Recursive string replace in XSLT 2.0
Hi. I am trying to make a recursive template so I can do a series of
find/changes on text nodes. I may have a lot of them, so I wanted to avoid
nested replace function calls. I am using a parameter for my find/change
pairs. In the recursive call, I am trying to use the current parameter with
[position()>1] to "pop" the first one off the list. It is not working and I
think it is a problem with this line: 

<xsl:with-param name="regex" select="$regex/regex[position()>1]"/>

but I am not sure the correct way to do this.

Here is my input file:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<test><p class="Note">abcdefghij.</p></test>

Here is my stylesheet:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
    <xsl:output indent="yes"/>
    <xsl:param name="regexes">
    <xsl:template match="/">
    <xsl:template match="p">
    <xsl:template match="text()[string-length(.)>0]">
        <xsl:message select="."></xsl:message>
        <xsl:call-template name="applyRegexes">
            <xsl:with-param name="nodeText" select="."/>
            <xsl:with-param name="regex" select="$regexes"/>
    <xsl:template name="applyRegexes">
        <xsl:param name="nodeText"/>
        <xsl:param name="regex"/>
        <xsl:message select="$regex"></xsl:message>
        <xsl:message select="$regex/regex[1]"/>
        <xsl:message select="$regex/regex[position()>1]"/>
            <xsl:when test="count($regex/regex)">
                <xsl:variable name="temp">
                <xsl:call-template name="applyRegexes">
                    <xsl:with-param name="nodeText" select="$temp"/>
                    <xsl:with-param name="regex"
                <xsl:value-of select="$nodeText"/>

Thanks in advance for any help or pointers.
