I think you cannot do that due to the way XSL and JavaScript work. JavaScript
is executed by the browser, which only interprets HTML code..

If you display an XML in the browser using a XSL, the browser finally will
receive the HTML, and in that moment all JavaScript code may be executed.

Why do you have to do that? cannot you use only JavaScript? Maybe if you tell
what you plan to do, maybe we can suggest the way to go around that.

Hi Jaime,

It is a Javascript variable, not XSL variable. The variable contains
the value of combo box, so I need to pass this one to use it as XSL
param or variable to filter some results.

<script type="text/javascript">
function getValue() {
return var;

<select name="combo1">
<option select="{$value1}>Option1</option>
<option select="{$value2}>Option2</option>
<option select="{$value3}>Option3</option>
<option select="{$value4}>Option4</option>

"var" is a Javascript variable and I need to get something like:

<xsl:param name="var2" select="(value of var)"/>
<xsl:value-of select="$var2"/>
