I think you are referring either to xsl:analyze-string in XSLT, or to character
maps, also in XSLT.

"Markup" is a serialization concept rather than a data model concept. We have
taken the view that all facilities for constructing new nodes belong in the XSLT
and XQuery languages rather than in the function library. This is because in
most cases they require custom syntax, as they are too complex to express using
function calls alone.
