Finally, I note that your test for your filter is brittle. @filter='filter11' will pass. (And 'filter10' will pass for two reasons.) The best fix to this depends on how you are using @filter.

From the description of the problem, I think he wanted @filter='filter1' rather than contains(@filter, 'filter1'). It's a common mistake, people think of a node as "containing" a value and so reach for the contains() function without reading the spec to see what it does.
