Thanks Wendell and Martin. Of course. Makes sense. /node() works perfectly in 
this instance.

Don't kick yourself, but the path in your select expression 
"div/p[@class='passage']/*" will select only elements.

To select all nodes, use "div/p[@class='passage']/node()", or for just 
elements and text (no comments or PIs, use "div/p[@class='passage']/(* | 

I can see this easily 'cause I've made this mistake dozens of times.

Cheers, Wendell

I have a document with the following structure:

    I need to chunk this into separte items:

    If there were no nodes in the text between spans, I could use tokenize, 
which I do on such occasions. 
    With sets such as the one above, I have been trying to use 
for-each-group. But I am unable to capture the text between the span elements.
    Here is the relevant section of my current stylesheet (3.0 Saxon-PE
    <xsl:variable name="passage_raw">
        <div class="passage_set">
            <xsl:for-each-group select="div/p[@class='passage']/*" 
                <p class="item">
                    <xsl:attribute name="itemNum">
                        <xsl:value-of select="current-group()[1]"/>
                    <xsl:copy-of select="current-group()"/>
    Here is the output:
    <div class="passage_set">
        <p class="item" itemNum="(1)"><span 
        <p class="item" itemNum="(2)"><span class="itemNum">(2)</span></p>
        <p class="item" itemNum="(3)"><span class="itemNum">(3)</span></p>
    I feel like I am close.
    Is there any way to capture the text following the span using grouping or 
any other method available in 3.0?

Any help would be much appreciated.
