Nice way to set the var - I will steal that for future use - thanks.
Also split up the apple-template - YES - I should have though of that
so now I have this:
<xsl:apply-templates select="document('/home/eric/lookup.xml')/doc/topic[@about=$about]">
<xsl:with-param name="render2web" select="yes"/>

>   <xsl:template match="topic">

Oh, declare your parameter again at this level - I would not have
thought of that.

So in the rendering template:
<xsl:template match="ivory">
  <xsl:param name="render2web"/>
 <xsl:if test="$render2web">
   <xsl:attribute name="font-size">44pt</xsl:attribute>

Only if I explicitly use select to give the $render2web a value
in the xsl:param, does the xsl:if trigger.
So the with-param don't seem to be passing the value through.

What could I be missing?
