I'm sorry, I should've tested this *before* replying ;-)  

Apparantly you cannot specify an <xsl:if> inside a call-template. The
only solution I can come up with this quickly is putting the entire
call-template call inside an <xsl:if> but thats not really a solution
if there's going to be more than one parameter.
