Using a variable to get the value of an element

I was wondering if anyone could give me a hand with this...

I need the value of an element, but the name of that element is stored
in a variable - see below:

Where I say <xsl:apply-templates select="$hello" /> I actually want the
value of the element whose name is stored in the variable hello, not the
value of the variable.

<xsl:template match="thing">
<xsl:variable name="hello">
   officename1_<xsl:value-of select="$PageLang" />

                        <td>Office: <xsl:apply-templates select="$hello"

Any help would be greatly appreciated,
