xsl lookup from xml

I want to select the "value" element in the messages.xml file and it appears that we're selecting the id value in the original document.  BTW, I'm using java and xalan/xerces to parse this and apparently the xpath you gave me is returning a BOOLEAN and it's expecting a NODELIST.

org.apache.xpath.XPathException: Can not convert #BOOLEAN to a NodeList!

<xsl:template match="message">
<xsl:param name="id" select="@id"/>
 <xsl:for-each select="document('messages.xml')/messages/message/@id=$id">
<xsl:value-of select="@id"/>

could also apply-templates against the messages document

<xsl:apply-templates select="document('messages.xml')/messages" mode="doc"/>
for example
