I thought that was what you were going to say (and I should have just
looked at the spec before posting, mea culpa). I can't think of any
other way to do this with the analyze-string recursive replacing with
xsl:sequence...and I'm loathe to change that much since it is working
fine!  I suppose one answer is to transform the input so it has
better/more/different delimiters of some sort, but I'll have to think
that through.

Ah well,
