You should have mentioned you were using 2.0.:-)

yes you could, assuming namespaces match up.

no don't do that, although it ought to work, it causes the stylesheet to
be re-parsed. In 2.0 you can query into variables so you can just use
$language-table  instead of $stylesheet.

I'd guess it's a namespace problem.
