xsl:break instruction is used within
xsl:iterate, and causes premature completion before the entire input sequence has been processed. If there is a
select attribute, or a contained sequence constructor, this is evaluated and added to the result of the containing
xsl:break instruction must not be followed by further instructions, though it can occur as the last thing in a branch of a conditional. It must appear lexically within the
xsl:iterate instruction (and not, for example, in a called template or function).
Available in XSLT 3.0. From Saxon 9.8, available in all editions. Implemented in Saxon-PE and Saxon-EE since Saxon 9.6.
