The Problem: *[$nodeNr] was not a number ('1', not 1)
*[position() = $nodeNr] is the correct solution.

Thx and have a nice day...

"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]"/>

what you want. Use the predicate above, or make sure $nodeNr is bound to a
