Putting parameter into XPATH expression

parameter in xpath
Hi,

In the code extract below, I always get the result "OneOneOne" instead of
"OneTwoThree" which I am expecting.

I found a work around (based on my previous experience writing compilers)
that gets XSL processor to do what I want: "<xsl:value-of
select="a/b[$Position + 0 ]/c"/>"

Can someone tell me a better (more correct) way to do this?

XML ------------------
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<a>
  <b>	<c>One</c> </b>
  <b>	<c>Two</c> </b>
  <b>	<c>Three</c> </b>
</a>
  

In my XSL, I do the following to write out the words One, Two and Three
---------------

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"> 

<xsl:output method="text"/>

<xsl:template match="/">
		 		<xsl:call-template name="Jump">
				    <xsl:with-param name="Position"
select="'1'"/>
				</xsl:call-template>

		 		<xsl:call-template name="Jump">
				    <xsl:with-param name="Position"
select="'2'"/>
				</xsl:call-template>

		 		<xsl:call-template name="Jump">
				    <xsl:with-param name="Position"
select="'3'"/>
				</xsl:call-template>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template name="Jump">
		<xsl:param name="Position"/>

	<xsl:value-of select="a/b[$Position ]/c"/>

</xsl:template>

Thanks,
