XSLT is a declarative language not a sequential one, so you can't "remember"
values and use them "later", because those are sequential concepts. You need
to change your thinking.

I think it would be a good idea to describe the transformation you want to
perform, because your code looks as if you've got the design approach all
wrong, so it would be a mistake to tackle the problems at the coding level.

(And it might be a good idea to abandon the "URGENT" from the heading.
Trying to run before you have learnt to walk is not a good way of reaching
your destination quickly.)
