Note thet document(data: isn't for the case that you are passing in an XML fragment, it is for the case that you are passing in a string with some XML markup. A simpler is just to pass in the XML document itself as the parameter. then your xsl just looks like <xsl:param name="otherdoc" select="/.."/> ... <xsl:apply-templates select="$otherdoc/whatever/path/you/need"/> ... Thus your xsl doesn't need any functions at all. How you pass in a node st (typicall, but not always as a DOM object of some sort) as a parameter depends on the system you are using. Certainly xalan saxon etc can do this (from the java api, if not from the command line) but I can't say about xml spy.
