it was a direct copy of your suggestion

 <xsl:template match="xsd:element[@type=$InPlaceTypesList]">

this matches all elements with type in that list.

Ypu then wanted to do this

>    <xsl:call-template name="@type"/> // <-- error line

I suggested you do instead

<xsl:apply-templates select="@type"/>

then teh only other change is that each template that you wanted to name
but call with the name determoned at runtime change

<xsl:template name="MyTypeX"">


<xsl:template match="xsd:element[@type='MyTypeX']">

So my suggested code had exactly the same number of templates and
structure as your suggestion, but used match instead of name, and is
legal xslt.
