Hello all,

    I have a question regarding this recent post, and would appreciate some
clarification.  Here's the snippet that my questions stem from:

                   <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
                    <!-- //
                         function callDetail(item_no)
                              <xsl:call-template name="detail">
                                   <xsl:with-param name="item_input">
                                        <xsl:value-of select="$item_no"/>
                    // End -->

At the point where the transformation takes place, the XSL processor has no
knowledge of the item_no variable, correct?  The transformation is happening
before any javascript is realized, so how is it the transformation knows
about this variable?  Is it simply passing *something* along to the template
to be used?  How can the value-of be resolved?  Sorry for the confusion, but
I am curious........

And feel the water rise around me
Drown the beat of time
Let my senses fall away
I can see much clearer now,
I'm blind.
Find all you need in your mind
If you take the time.
