xslt lookup ref
Infexions (WA) Pty LtdHi,

There is a Saxon extension saxon:evaluate(string) you should get the result
using something like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
xmlns:saxon="http://icl.com/saxon" extension-element-prefixes="saxon">
 <xsl:output method="xml" version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" indent="yes"/>
 <xsl:template match="/">
     <xsl:apply-templates select="/imb/form/input"/>
 <xsl:template match="input">
 <xsl:variable name="evalXPath" select="saxon:evaluate(@ref)"/>
  <xsl:value-of select="caption"/>
  <xsl:text>: </xsl:text>
  <input type="text" name="{@ref}" value="{$evalXPath}"/>

you do loose portability with this approach. You could modify your xml and
xsl to do something like this:

   <form form-id="1">
     <input widget-id="1" name="firstName">
       <caption>First name</caption>
     <input widget-id="2" name="lastName">
       <caption>Last name</caption>
 <!-- form-ref-id = form-id -->
   <data form-ref-id="1">
<!-- widget-ref-id = widget-id -->
       <firstname widget-ref-id="1">Jix</firstname>
       <lastname widget-ref-id="2">Jacoby</lastname>

<xsl:stylesheet ....
<xsl:template match="input">
<xsl:variable name="formWidgetId" select="@form-widget-id"/>
 <input type="text" name="{@name}">
  <xsl:attribute name="value">
   <xsl:value-of select="//data/user/*[@widget-ref-id = $formWidgetId]"/>
