I apologize for hijacking the XSL list for XPath questions,
xpath is on-topic here.
I have written some XSL-like application ...
however I am not able to
use the current context (one of the <id> elements in the <idList>) to
evaluate an XPath expression as "//info[id = .]"
In pure Xpath 1 you can't do this. XSLT has three solutions though so you just need to implement one of those in your language
1) an additional xpath function, current()
"//info[id = current()]"
2) The ability to bind XPath variables in the host language
<xsl:variable name="here" select="."/> .... select="//info[id = $here]"
3) Implement (at least parts of) XPath2 to allow variable binding within XPath.
select="for $here in . return //info[id = $here]"
