I suspect an error in the code you haven't shown us - for example, the context might be wrong. Please show a complete (but small) XML source document and stylesheet, this is much easier to debug than a fragment.

Hi, You should use the tokenize function

tokenize(string,pattern)

something like

for $w in tokenize($History,'^') return $w

As I said, the problem could well be that the context isn't set up correctly for your code to run. The fact that you haven't demonstrated the context suggests that you haven't understood its importance.

I'm also confused as to why you have shown two different versions of your source document, without any explanation.

As I said before, please provide a complete runnable example that demonstrates the problem, so we can tell you where you went wrong.
