1. The <xsl:value-of> instruction must be empty.
2. <xsl:value-of> writes a text node to the output, <xsl:attribute> writes
an attribute node, why would you want to do both at once?
3. The value of the attribute node created will be the string
'//some1/abc/some2', it will not be the value obtained by treating this
string as an XPath expression and evaluating it. XSLT 1.0 does not allow you
to construct XPath expressions dynamically from strings.
