I need help on using xsl:key
I have a strange behaviour with XSL:KEY.
The following key creates a problem with Websphere 4.0.3 but works fine in Weblogic and Tomcat.

<xsl:variable name="asRevRevRelation" select="'AsRevRev'"/>
<xsl:key name="asRevRevRelations"

ON removing the $asRevRevRelation variable reference, the key works fine.

XSLT 1.0 Section 12.2 the last paragraph before the subsection titled "Function: node-set key(string,object)" reads:

   It is an error for the value of either the use attribute
   or the match attribute to contain a VariableReference.

I hope this helps.
