Note that I didn+IBk-t actually doubt the soundness of the spec+IBQ-the XSLT
spec is one of few standards whose soundness I accept as a given :-) I
would have considered for-each-as-string-contatenation sound enough and
was pleased to learn that it was better than that.

+AD4-This is too rare a moment on any Internet forum: someone tries
+AD4-something, +ACo-reads the spec+ACo-, doubts its soundness, asks
questions, +ACo-gets
+AD4-qualified answers+ACo-, +ACo-reads the spec again+ACo- +IBM- and ends up
+AD4-Then +ACo-shares his enlightenment process+ACo- with the forum.
+AD4-Thanks Eliot for sharing, thanks everybody for answering not only this
+AD4-question, and thanks Tommie et al. +AEA- Mulberry Tech for xsl-list.
