There is a common gotcha, as well.

It should be noted that variables in template bodies and not constrained to the
template bodies of blocks, as above, scope to the template enclosing their
declaration and all following::sibling templates and their children in document
order in the stylesheet, yet not to child templates called or applied from
within that declaring template.  Variables declared at the top-level of the
stylesheet are available throughout the transformation.
