I am very new to xsl/xslt and have a basic problem.  I am setting a style
sheet color based on a condition.
I'd like the color to be a variable value, like
<xsl:variable name="statColor" select="#33cc33">
and set this variable in the if/choose condtion.
Then recall it like
<span style="color:{$statColor}"><xsl:value-of select="status"></span>

I have it like this now, but want to simplfiy it:

        <xsl:when test="status='undelivered'"> <span
style="color:#ff0000">  <xsl:value-of select="status"/></span>
        <xsl:when test="status='inprogress'"> <span style="color:#33cc33">
 <xsl:value-of select="status"/></span> </xsl:when>
        <xsl:when test="status='delivered'">  <span style="color:#0033ff">
 <xsl:value-of select="status"/></span> </xsl:when>
        <xsl:when test="status='escalated'">  <span style="color:#ffff33">
 <xsl:value-of select="status"/></span> </xsl:when>
        <xsl:otherwise> <span style="color:#000000">  <xsl:value-of

I cant seem to get it to work.
