Ah, good catch Dimitre. Thanks. I fixed that.

I think I see what you are saying Dimitre. If the text is huge (say, a 1 GB
text node or even a simple large text input), then a streaming processor will
crash.

I don't see anything in the XSLT 3.0 specification about streaming text.
Streaming XML element nodes is good, but streaming text is equally important.

What is the XSLT working group's plans for supporting the streaming of text?
