I am not sure what you want your source input to look like.
However some general hints, if you have a string variable called x
then you can add ", 10.7" to the end of the string with

<xsl:.... name="x" select="concat($x$,', 10.7')"/>

xsl:....  could be xsl:variable, but probably won't be as the scoping
rules for variables probably mean that this doesn't do what you want.

most likely you want to make a named template that builds up the string
and then loop via _recursion_ so the old value of the string is still in
scope when you add the new bit to the end.

so something like
<xsl:call-template name="foo">
<xsl:with-param name="x" select="concat($x$,', 10.7')"/>

where the tempate called foo finds the next bit of data from your input
tree, then in an xsl:choose either makes the <IMG output if the thing is
finished, or recursively calls itself as above to build up the next part
of the string.
