simple matching

Here's another: This seems to find the element node where @task = 1, but
it doesn't actually write out the value of @task. Why?
Because you don't say exactly which task attribute to write.
It just writes out:

<xsl:if test="//*[@task=$nextTask]">
	@TASK = <xsl:value-of select="@task" />
It can be translated into English as follows: if somewhere in the document exists an attribute with string value equals to $nextTask, output value of @task attribute of the *context* node.
So effectively you are testing one thing and outputting another. Most likely you need
<xsl:if test="//*[@task=$nextTask]">
@TASK = <xsl:value-of select="//*[@task=$nextTask]" />
but beware that could be terribly uneffective.
