Many thanks to all who responded. My problem stems from "some_text_here" looks like a string to me as does "$variable_here". Just depends on when the "expansion" would occur from text in the XSL to the node set. Anyway, with everyone's input, I now have the template using a param variable for the selection and the caller uses the above suggestion for building the elusive node-set !! Cheers!
