You can't call templates by name dynamically. However, in this case
you could probably create templates like:

<xsl:template name="sample" match="label[. = 'sample']">

which matches label elements whose value is "sample" and then apply
templates to the label element to use the template:

  <xsl:apply-templates select="label" />

If the current node at the point where you 'call' the template is
important, then you should pass it in as a parameter.

I hope that helps,
