RE:  Modify Variable value
You asked "Is there any way.....?" The answer is NO, if you consider
standard XSLT
But when you are able to limit your XSLT file into a particular domain,
you can do achieve the similar Variable effect with the third part
embedded code in XSLT files (Example: JavaScript/Java Extensions/C#
Extensions etc).
Really tons of XSLT code is around without the actual variable in it.
If you have any particular situation that is expecting a variable use,
please let us know, that can be resolved with a work around

Hi Senthi,

XSLT is unlike other programming languages that allow field values to be

The concepts are a little different in XSLT, from my experience coming
from a background of other languages, so it helped me to look at XSLT
differently and to expect it to be different.

I was reading about the fact that one cannot update the value of a
variable XSLT 2.0 reference book by Michael Kay under "No Side Effects"
in chapter 1.

Also there's a nice explanation about it here:
