YESS! This (tokenising with in the XSL) was the final idea to solve this
puzzling problem! I was to lazy to try out the String[], since this would also
leave me with
tokenising the argument within the servlet (and I like the simple and clean
intermediate step to tokenise in the XSL!)
Thank you very much Martin (but also thanks to all contributors)!

As final wrap up to make this thread useful to the public:

Be careful with how the transformers handle complex input if passing in as
external parameters (and Graydon, I tried using different quotation, it did
not help!)!
Here one really has to consult the documentation of THAT specific transformer
in full detail on how the setParameterbs second argument is going to be
handled!

html you could also try to pass a Java String[] as the parameter value, it
should then be treated as a sequence of strings in XSLT/XPath. That is the 9.5
documentation however, I don't know whether 9.1 is different.
