I have used the <xsl:for-each-group> element quite a lot. One feature that I miss is a function that would allow me to know if the current group matches the group-starting-with or group-ending-with criteria without having to repeat the test on the nodes in the current group (all over again). The main reason would be to cut back on verbosity... I guess there might exist an easy work-around that somebody might know of, so please forgive my ignorance. A true() or a false() is all that would be needed as the result for this function
