???? That's what XSLT normally does, iterates through (children of) a
node in an XML tree.

Your problem is unrelated to that and is explict in the error message
you quote:

> but got the error: "match pattern contains a variable reference"

XSLT match patterns may not contain variable references, and yours does.
(This restriction is dropped in XSLT2 but we are using XSLT1)

Don't do

<xsl:template match="option[@value=$nr]">


<xsl:template match="option">
<xsl:if test="@value=$nr">
<xsl:attribute name="selected">selected</xsl:attribute>
	<xsl:copy-of select="@*|node()"/>
