We can come close - we can take a string, which could be extracted from
a node, and we can turn that into an element tree, with saxon:parse() -
to use this you have to associate the prefix saxon with
"http://saxon.sf.net/" e.g.


<xsl:stylesheet .. .. ..
   xmlns:saxon="http://saxon.sf.net/">

[. . .]
   <xsl:variable name="theTree" select="saxon:parse($theString)" />
   <xsl:value-of select="$theTree//title" />


You'll probably have to use try/catch if the unescaped string might not
be well-formed XML of course.
