Default simplifying an expression

Just wanted to know if there is any way to simplify an expression of this kind:

<xsl:if test="'LS1' = $fras or 'LS2' = $fras or 'LS3' = $fras or 'LS4' = $fras or 'LS5' = $fras or 'LS6' = $fras or 'LSO' = $fras">

In some parts of my application Im going to need to compare more than 20 strings so I would be happy if someone could tell me if there is any way to make this kind of expressions simpler.

Thanks for the help

In 2.0 you can do

test="$fras = ('LS1', 'LS2', 'LS3'...)"

Alternatively put the strings into an XML document


and do test="$fras = $lookup/lookup/v".
