xsl drop down

I'm looking for a better more generalized way to handle html drop down
listboxes.  Currently I'm writing code much like below, where I create a
seperate template for each drop down, altering the XPath to the xml
list of label/values ("Status"), name of the select control (status_id),
and initial value for the control ("/Page/Data/Edit/status_id").

The xsl looks like this:

  <xsl:apply-templates select="Status" />
  <xsl:template match="Status">
    <select name="status_id">
      <option value=""></option>
      <xsl:for-each select="Option">
        <xsl:if test="value = /Page/Data/Edit/status_id">
          <xsl:attribute name="selected">1</xsl:attribute>
        <xsl:attribute name="value">
          <xsl:value-of select="value" />
        <xsl:value-of select="label" />



I'm hoping there is a way to write a single template where I can call it
several places and somehow pass different values for those three
variables each time.  Any suggestions?
