Subject: Re: [xsl] Variable Substitution In A Select Statement|

Using Saxon-PE 188.8.131.52J from Saxonica (XSLT 2.0):
The following template matches on the specified @id in $FileA. Just what I need.
<xsl:apply-templates select="$FileA/book/level1/level2/section/@id" />
However, if I have a variable, $Axpath_new, valued at "book/level1/level 2/section", the following template returns nothing:
<xsl:apply-templates select ="$FileA/$Axpath_new/@id" />
Testing a multitude of methods, I could never get a variable to work in the select statement. After much studying about how to make the template work properly, I read that I could try using the extension function node-set(). Further research stated that my free version of Saxon9 doesn't include those extensions but the Saxon9pe version does. So, I purchased a copy of Saxon9pe and installed it yesterday. (Also, I believe I read that if I was using XSLT 2.0, I wouldn't need to use the node-set() function.)
Any way, it seems like such a simple thing but I'm at a loss, and I'm asking for your kind assistance.
