Re: storing the result of a transformation in a param
String-length only works if $content is a text node, on a result tree fragment, it returns false every time. or more exactly if it has any text nodes anywhere in its descendants. (You needn't use string-length you ca just use test="string($foo)" which is the same thing. But if teh variable only consists of elements with no text content this will test empty. I found that I can use an extension function like so: <xsl:param name="nodeSet" select="exsl:node-set($content)"/> almost every processor has a node-set extension (mozilla's transformix being an exception unfortunately) although not always in the exsltnamespace. It's more or less considered standard, and in xslt2 variables will automatically produce node-sets and no function will be needed.
