Ok, new question I found a way :)

Which is built into Saxon7.4 (Saxon rocks) - but when I try to use it I

No method matching objectType with 1 parameter found in class

when passing


<xsl:value-of select="set:object-type('test')" />

According to the site:

Function Syntax
string exsl:object-type(object)

The exsl:object-type function returns a string giving the type of the
object passed as the argument. The possible object types are: 'string',
'number', 'boolean', 'node-set', 'RTF' or 'external'.
