Sorry about this:
What I am doing is this:
<xsl:variable name="filename">
            <xsl:value-of select="//filename"/>

Where the //filename points to:

Error I am getting is:
2012-01-16 09:55:57: An Exception has occured:
'file:///j:/NTB-Normalizer/xml/Travresultater/RES_X_20101015_095157.xml' is
not a valid windows path or URI. at xsl:variable
Line 13, Character 10

fileXML, ArrayList dirOutput, ArrayList arrFileEncoding, String
strOutputDocType) in C:\Visual Studio Projects\Visual Studio

2012-01-16 09:55:57: Moving file to J:\NTB-Normalizer\error

It does not create this error when I am parsing/converting files that does not
have Nordic characters.

As said in the initial mail: I can do this quick'n dirty by creating my own
filename, but I kind of does not want to do that as I (or someone else) might
have to get in touch with the originator of the file and therefor it is a good
thing to tell them which file we have problems with.

Standard answer to this kind of question: there's no point telling us you're
getting an error without telling us what the error is.

You need to say exactly what you did and exactly how it failed.

If the issue concerns non-ASCII filenames then it may also be dependent on
your operating system.
