This is the first time somebody mentions that an XSLT processor will re-evaluate a global xsl:variable every time it's being referenced. Could some of the XSLT processors developers say if this is meaningful at all? > I need a different behaviour here. In my case that variable remains > constant through out the xsl.

In case the xsl:variable is really declared globally (it is a child of the xsl:stylesheet element), then there's no reason why it should be continuously re-evaluated. If what you describe is true, it sounds extremely strange. Probably you didn't describe the problem precisely enough? Which XSLT processor are you using?
