I've a variable which I process inside a template. While processig this

The problem is, that while processing the variable "theVariable" with
"xsl:for-each", the "apply-templates" command searches for
"aNodeInsideTheSourceDocument" inside "theVariable" but not as required
inside the source XML document.

Correct, because you changed your context with the <xsl:for-each>

Is there any way to process the source document whily processing a variable
with XSLT 1.0?

Yes, by putting it into another variable:

<xsl:variable name="sNode" select="aNodeInsideTheSourceDocument"/>

<xsl:for-each select="$theVariable">
 <!-- some code here -->
  <xsl:apply-template select="$sNode" />

 <!-- some more code here -->

I hope this helps.
