convert string nodelist
As Michael pointed out, this can only be a dynamic error.

This may happen if the parrameter is passet with xsl:apply-templates and
some other template (which knows nothing about the parameter or is not
passing it through) is instantiated. As result when the template that needs
the parameter is instantiated it is not passed any parameter.

A complete example is the following:


<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
  <xsl:output omit-xml-declaration="yes" indent="yes"/>

  <xsl:template match="a">
      <xsl:with-param name="labelsfile" select="document('')"/>

  <xsl:template match="c">
    <xsl:param name="labelsfile"/>

    <xsl:value-of select="count($labelsfile)"/>

    <xsl:for-each select="$labelsfile/*/*">
      <xsl:copy-of select="."/>

In this case the *dynamically* raised error message with Saxon 6.5.3 is:

"Error at xsl:value-of on line 14 of file:/(Untitled):
  The value is not a node-set"
