Substring function in XSLT

And they just didn't make it something like javascript... I'm never expected that XSLT has function like this, and it just helped me in one of my XML/XSL parsing task.

 substring("ABCDEFG",3,3)  will display CDE since XSLT doesn't refer the first element on 0 index.

Actually, I really disliked the way XSLT do in loops. you can't overwrite variables, and for-looping and performing something on a node-specific basis is really painful, you have to do it the HARD way, which makes your coding experience a bit dirty, especially if you are already attached to the OOP way of doing things...

XSLT was never meant to be a programming language anyway.. .
