[xsl] Force the case of a set of strings

Subject: [xsl] Force the case of a set of strings

I have a sequence of strings which are all 'ok' or 'fail' where I want to
force the case of all of them.

When I say they are all 'ok' or 'fail' I actually mean they may be 'ok', 'OK',
'Ok', 'Fail', 'fail', 'FAIL' etc.

I use

<xsl:variable name="ok-fails-1" select="$states/normalize-space(column[7])"

to extract the sequence from my original xml.

If I say

<xsl:variable name="ok-fails-1-lc" select="lower-case( $ok-fails-1 )" />

then I get told that lower-case can only take a string as its parameter, not a

Can anyone suggest how I might process my sequence to return a sequence but
have each entry passed through lower-case.

I thought maybe I could pass it as a parameter to a moded apply-templates, but
then I get warned that select needs a node, not a string, as its @select

Subsequently I do distinct-values on it and the result of that I want only to
contain 'ok' or 'fail', with no case variations remaining.
