I have to compare a variable with string values.
I can use the following but wondering if XSLT has an operator 'like' or eqivalent which compare variable with different string.

  <xsl:if test="contains($curAttribute,'string1') or contains($curAttribute,'string1')">
do some job
</xsl:if>

My actual concern is to make the instruction less process consuming.

XSLT has no equivalent function to 'like'
contains() is about the best option you have

If you would be using XSLT2, there is regular expressions,
that could be helpful in a sense
