RE: Set variable via contents of <variable> element
Thanks to all for your very helpful replies. I'm using XSLT 2.0. I didn't know about <sequence> - this is the key to solving my problem. It also needed the as="node()" - what type is returned if I omit this? I.e. what type does the variable $usethis have after: <xsl:template match="item"> <xsl:variable name="this" select="."/> <xsl:variable name="usethis"> <xsl:sequence select="$this"/> </xsl:variable> As usual this list is proving a huge help in understanding and getting the best from XSLT - many thanks to all the helpful contributors.
