->For some reason, the first two variable declarations work 
->fine, but the
->third one gives this error:
->pattern = '$pm-$hourMinutes' Extra illegal tokens: '$', 'hourMinutes'
->     <xsl:variable name="hours" select="round($pm div 60)"/>
->     <xsl:variable name="hourMinutes" select="$hours*60"/>
->     <xsl:variable name="minutes" select="$pm-$hourMinutes"/>
->Can't I subtract in XSL? I'm using Xalan.


<xsl:variable name="minutes" select="$pm - $hourMinutes"/>

should work, '-' can be part of a variable name in xslt, that's why you get
illegal token...
