I am using the latest LotusXSL processor which is in accordance with the
April XSL draft.

I have the following XML:
<advertisement action="inquiry" state="view">
<contact id="contact1">
	<company>WILLIAM S. ROSS R.E.</company>
	<phone where="work" type="phone"></phone>
<contact id="fwd1">
	<phone where="work" type="phone">9147930663</phone>
	<phone where="work" type="fax">9147936054</phone>
	<agency>44040<description>MILLER AA</description></agency>
	<account type="contract">10007</account>
	<contact_ref link="contact1"></contact_ref>

This is what I am trying to do:
1. Go to advertiser, get what is in contact_ref@link and store it in a
variable called CREF.
2. Go to contact, and match contact/@id with CREF.
3. If it matches, then do something...

I have the following code:

	<xsl:variable name="CREF"

	<xsl:if test='advertisement/contact/@id=$CREF'> -- This doesn't work

Do you know why my code doesn't work?
