I need to replace a char in my string with two chars(say replace 'a' with 'bc'). translate function wud not help cos it can only perform a char-char translation. So i thot I wud call a javascript function which can do this for me. But how do I call a javascript function from my xsl. and this needs to be called while the transformation is taking place. i am basically performing a xml to xml transformation.
Or if anyone knows a better idea to replace a single char with two chars, let me know please.
