I have a stylesheet where I need to handle several different situations.
I want to make these selections, for instance

<xsl:value-of select="$questions//Track[@id='T1']/MCP[@id='MC1']/ReportInstructions"/>
<xsl:value-of select="Report/TrackT1/Position[@position='Left Front']/MCHistogram[@id='1']/Average"/>

<xsl:copy-of select="/Report/TrackT1/Position[@position='Left Front']/MCHistogram[@id='1']/svg:svg"/>

In different situations, the value T1 and MC1 change, to say T2 and MC2, and position might be Right Rear.

how about

<xsl:template name="parameterizedTemplate">
<xsl:param name="trackID"/>
<xsl:param name="mcpID"/>
<xsl:param name="position"/>
<xsl:value-of select="$questions//Track[@id=$trackID]/MCP[@id=$mcpID]/ReportInstructions"/>
<xsl:value-of select="Report/TrackT1/Position[@position=$position]/MCHistogram[@id='1']/Average"/>


you can invoke this template with

<xsl:call-template name="parameterizedTemplate">
	<xsl:with-param name="trackID" select="'T1'"/>
	<xsl:with-param name="mcpID" select="'MC2'"/>
	<xsl:with-param name="position" select="'Left Rear'"/>

hope that helps,
