XSLT replace(,,) in VS200* ...

I would really like to be able to use the XSLT replace(,,) function in some work that I'm doing right now - but it seems as though I'm not able to, even in VS2008, because the .NET framework class libraries only support XSLT and XPath 1.0.

Have looked into Saxon for .NET, but there seems to be almost no documentation avialable as to how to use this component. The VS2008 XSLT debugger is actually superb, so I'm a bit baffled by this lack of support for XSLT and XPath 2.0 :-/

Anyway, I was sent this link ...

Which provides a code-listing that implements a custom search-and-replace function in XSLT. Works like a charm ;-)
