   It might be a bit more difficult then this, but make sure that you
   qualify your variable (parameters also) with a $. It is possible that
   you might also need the curly brackets around the variable name.

   <xsl:variabe name="dest">
	  <xsl:copy-of select="translate($source, 'V1', 'V2')"/>

translate translates individual characters, the above transaltes V toV
and 1 to 2.

Search for "replace" in the xsl faq at


   <xsl:variabe name="dest">
	  <xsl:copy-of select="translate({$source}, 'V1', 'V2')"/>

the characters {} never have any significance in an XPath expression,
and will always generate a syntax error, unless they are part of a string
