Subject: [xsl] Does 'Lecœur' occur in $text? Do you have a multi-factor XPath solution?

Hi Folks,

I want to determine if 'Lecur' occurs in $text.

A naove solution is this XPath expression:

      contains($text, 'Lecur')

However, that does not take into account many important factors:

1. Perhaps 'Lecur' occurs, but in $text it is in uppercase

2. Perhaps instead of the '' ligature, $text uses 'oe'

3. Perhaps in $text 'Lecur' is split over two lines and thus is hyphenated

4. Perhaps 'Lecur' is slightly misspelled in $text and therefore requires
fuzzy matching

And there are many other important factors.

Do you have an XPath solution to this problem that takes into account the many
important factors?

/Roger
