It's kinda hard to tell what your question is ;)  I think it's to do

What you're after are stylesheet parameters.  You declare them at the
top level of your stylesheet (with a default value if you want):

<xsl:param name="item" select="'home'" />

and pass them into the stylesheet in a processor specific way.  For
MSXML, you use .addParameter:

  XSLTProcessor.addParameter('item', 'info');

[see the MSXML SDK documentation]

You can then use them within your stylesheet as you would any
variable.  For example:

    <xsl:when test="$item = 'contact'">
      <!-- display stuff about contacts -->
    <xsl:when test="$item = 'info'">
      <!-- display stuff about info -->
      <!-- display stuff about home -->

I hope that helps point you in the right direction, but do barrage us
with more specific questions if not.
