That's a long-winded and expensive way of doing

True, so I have shortened it, but it also makes it easier to see what you are
doing - and especially if there are others looking at the lines.

<xsl:variable name="filename" select="//filename"/>

I suspect you are getting the error when you use the variable, not when you
declare it. I imagine you are using the variable as an argument to the doc()
or document() function. The argument to this is expected to be a valid URI,
and non-ASCII characters are not valid in URIs: try calling
encode-for-uri() first:

Yes, this did the trick. Thanks for pointing this out for me!
