Not that it makes any difference here, the XSLT spec uses the word "instruction" to describe elements in the XSLT namespace; also, with xsl:apply-templates you don't "apply a set of templates", but rather you "select a set of nodes and apply their templates in document order".

If $nodeNr is of type number, then it's a shorthand for

  <xsl:apply-templates select="layout/page-setup/*[position() = $nodeNr]"/>

otherwise the boolean valua of $nodeNr will be used, and that's probably not what you want. Use the predicate above, or make sure $nodeNr is bound to a number.
