This sounds to me like a candidate for sibling recursion, i.e. avoid the grouping constructs entirely, and process the sequence using a head/tail recursive function (or apply-templates along the following-sibling axis).

Hi everybody,

is there a way to limit the number of groups that are constructed by

XML: <line> v <tab /> w <tab /> x <tab /> y <tab/> z <line>

(v, w, x, y, z being mixed data)

In the example above, <xsl:for-each-group select="node()" group-ending-with="tab"> will find 5 groups.

Let's say I want no more than 3 groups, where the third group contains
"all the rest":
(1) v <tab />
(2) w <tab />
(3) x <tab /> y <tab/> z

To be more precise:
Groups 1 and 2 shall be processed on their own,
Groups 3 and all following groups shall go together in further

Thanks for your answers,
