xsl select child node variable

I want to be able to deal with a child of the node "father" on the fly
(using a variable), some thing like:
<xsl:variable name="son" select="'older_son'"/>
<xsl:value-of select="father/{$son}"/>

I found a solution, this seems to work: <xsl:variable name="son" select="'older_son'"/> <xsl:value-of select="father/*[name()=$son]"/> ________________________________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free E-mail from MSN Hotmail at http://www.hotmail.com
