parameter passing through xquery

You have a template that matches "/projects". In this template you do an

When you assign "/projects/record_id_" to the value of the parameter, you are
selecting a node that doesn't exist. Ergo, you get the default value of the

Actually, because that call is within a xsl:for-each that selects on "record," I think I'm actually getting /projects/record/record_id.

In fact, if you'll have a look at the debugging output I put in just before the xsl:apply-templates call, you'll see that I'm printing out the value-of "record" in the current context. I do, in fact, get the value of each "record_id_" tag here. And, if I change the code to select nodes from the current context as the argument to xsl:apply-templates, the value gets passed in correctly in the parameter.

It's only when I change the select to use the document call that the parameter fails to pass correctly.
