if you're using IE5, one possible technique is shown in several of the
Msoft examples that do filtering/sorting, e.g., stock-sorter. basically,
you can modify the parameter in the style sheet directly since it's just an
attribute in an XML object.  for example, this snippet (from portfolio.xsl)
sets up a reference to sortField, and then changes it later.  I'd assume
that you could do something similar for your xsl:if condition by searching
for its test attribute.

    function sort(field)


  <SCRIPT for="window" event="onload"><xsl:comment><![CDATA[
    sortField = sortStocks.selectSingleNode("//@order-by");
