[xsl] Passing values to tags within JavaScript

I've been lurking for a little while now and haven't found anything that might help me with this problem. Please excuse me if it's trivial, but I'm very new to XML/XSL.

We use a Perl-based templating system called PHtml to process HTML pages. We are currently planning a transition to XML/XSL and I am trying to convert our current pages. They mostly consist of separate 'objects' that are pulled together using PHtml to form complete HTML pages.

So far I have had success converting each object into two files - one that uses the exisiting PHtml to output XML, and the other consisting solely of XSL. Eventually I will have a large XML file that has been output by the PHtml process, against which I can run a separate XSL file that calls all the other XSL 'object' files.

I have come up against a brick wall trying to work out how to convert the following code:

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
var SSheet = "";
if (navigator.platform.indexOf("Mac")!=-1){
SSheet == "Mac";
document.write("<link href=\"<$ [.URL.CSS_ROOT]>/nndi" + SSheet + ".css\" rel=\"stylesheet\" type=\"text/css\">");

"<$ [.URL.CSS_ROOT]>" is a variable that is normally processed by PHtml and replaced by the correct path info. However, using the new system, I now have an XML file that contains the element:

<CSSRoot>[path info]</CSSRoot>

...and I need to pass this instead. Can anybody help?

Best regards
