Problem with substituting XSL @ variable into a hyper link

variable in a href
	I am trying to display an attribute from an XML document in a HREF
<A> tag
in XSL. The IE5 processor refuses to substitute in the variable value and
instead outputs the variable name

	(1)	<a href="http://www.bancal.com/servlet/{@id}">

	The following didn't work either for the <ADD> template

	(2)	<a href="#{@id}"/> Tag 1				

	The following XSL command substitutes it in correctly.

	(3)	<xsl:value-of select="@id"/>

Could anybody tell me if there is a way to substitute in the value of the
variable in example (1) and (2) please.

This full code is below.


	<Add id="A1">
		Add A User
	<Delete id="D1">
		Delete A User


	<xsl:template match="Add">
			<a href="#{@id}"/> Tag 1

	<xsl:template match="Delete">		   
	<a href="http://www.bancal.com/servlet/{@id}">
	<xsl:value-of select="@id"/></a>
