Use <xsl:param> in stead of <xsl:variable>.
If your querystring parameter is named "sort" then you can use it in your
stylesheet with <xsl:param name="sort" value="'xx'"/>, where xx is just a
default value in case there is no querystring parameter. Make sure the
<xsl:param> is at the top level and not within a template.
