Hi,

I am using the latest LotusXSL processor which is in accordance with the
April XSL draft.

I have the following XML:
<DATA>
<advertisement action="inquiry" state="view">
<contact id="contact1">
	<name></name>
	<company>WILLIAM S. ROSS R.E.</company>
	<phone where="work" type="phone"></phone>
</contact>
<contact id="fwd1">
	<name>Zedak</name>
	<company></company>
	<phone where="work" type="phone">9147930663</phone>
	<phone where="work" type="fax">9147936054</phone>
	<address><postal></postal></address>
</contact>
<advertiser>
	<agency>44040<description>MILLER AA</description></agency>
	<account type="contract">10007</account>
	<contact_ref link="contact1"></contact_ref>
</advertiser>
......

This is what I am trying to do:
1. Go to advertiser, get what is in contact_ref@link and store it in a
variable called CREF.
2. Go to contact, and match contact/@id with CREF.
3. If it matches, then do something...

I have the following code:

	<xsl:variable name="CREF"
expr="advertisement/advertiser/contact_ref/@link"/>

	<xsl:if test='advertisement/contact/@id=$CREF'> -- This doesn't work
		Match
	</xsl:if>

Do you know why my code doesn't work?
