Re: passing and retrieving parameter to a template

xs schema xs element
As best as I can see, you have two templates matching the same path.  You
think  you will get the second one when you use <xsl:apply-templates>, but
you will not.  From the context in which the second template is called,
there will be no elements matching


So either the second template will not get called at all (the first one has
priority), or, if it ever did get called, it would not be from the first one
and so the parameter would not have been assigned.

You should decide what path you really want to match with the second

Also, it would be very unusual to need to have a template with such a
detailed path as you are using.  The template will process all xs:element
that are within xs:sequences that are within the various other elements.
It's very specific.  Aren't you really traversing the entire schema pulling
out the interesting parts?  A more typical approach would be like this:

<xsl:template match='xs:schema'>
    <!-- Process elements-->
    <xsl:apply-templates select='xs:element' mode='top-level'/>
    <!-- Process complex types-->
    <xsl:apply-templates select='xs:complexType' mode='top-level'/>

<xsl:template match='xs:element' mode='top-level>
    <!-- Process element declarations here -->
    <!-- Get all inline complex types first-->
    <xsl:apply-templates select='xs:complexType' mode='inline'/>

<xsl:template match='xs:complexType' mode='top-level'>
    <!-- Process named complex type declarations  here -->

<xsl:template match='xs:complexType' mode='inline>
    <!-- Process inline complex type declarations  here -->

<!-- And so on ...-->
