RE:  using str:tokenize named template results
You're forgetting that a path expression starting with "/" or "//" selects
within the document that contains the context node - which in this case is
the document constructed by the str:tokenize template. You need to create a
global variable say <xsl:variable name="root" select="/"/> and then select
relative to that: select="$root//city[text() = $ns/token/text()]".

Or better, 

$root//city[. = $ns/token]"

You don't want to access the text nodes explicitly because comments or
processing instructions would stop your code working.
