Post loop through array variable and create nodes using xsl

I am creating an xml file through the xsl

I have an xsl variable which have the value as a string array. Now i need to loop through the array variable and create xml nodes. Following is my code.

<xsl:variable name="_arrInspectionTimes" select="(scripts:GetInspectionTime(normalize-space(openhouses/openhouse/openhouse_start), normalize-space(openhouses/openhouse/openhouse_end)))">

<xsl:element name="inspectionTimes">
<xsl:for-each select="$_arrInspectionTimes">
<xsl:element name="inspection">
<xsl:value-of disable-output-escaping="yes" select="."/>

I am not able to render the nodes inside the loop. Can anyone help?
output is simply <inspectionTimes/> closed node. I confirmed the returned values in the string[] they are proper. Thanks in advance.

Are you using XSLT 1.0 or 2.0?

XSLT 1.0 does not have a "string array" type.

XSLT 2.0 has "sequences of strings" - is this what you are referring to?

Which XSLT processor are you using?

What does the extension function scripts:GetInspectionTime do?

The evidence suggests that your variable _arrInspectionTimes contains an empty sequence (or if it's 1.0, and empty node-set), and if you believe that isn't the case, then you need to convince your readers why.
