What happens when a value of a variable is passed to exsl:node-set() ?
That is, suppose you have the following XSL fragment:

<xsl:variable name="nodes">
       <node>node 1</node>
       <node>node 2</node>
       <node>node 3</node>

Name: <xsl:value-of select="local-name(exsl:node-set($nodes))" />

The result I expect is:

Name: nodes

But, with libxslt 1.0.22 processor, I got:

Name: fake node libxslt

To get what I want, I have to write:

Name: <xsl:value-of select="local-name(exsl:node-set($nodes)/*)" />

really tedious!!!

So, am I wrong and libxslt is right? Or viceversa ?
Thanx in advance!
