There's nothing wrong with your command-line, so the problem must be elswhere.

Here is a complete stylesheet that produces the output you are looking for.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0" xmlns:xsl="";>
  <xsl:strip-space elements="*" />
  <xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes" encoding="UTF-8" />

	<xsl:param name="source"/>

	<xsl:template match="*">
	   source: <xsl:value-of select="$source"/>

I guess this is an easy one for you as I just can't figure out how to 
pass parameters from the commandline to a stylesheet. Saxon is called with:

java -jar saxon8.jar input.xml test.xsl source=test

I also tried "source=test" and source="test" (I am using winXP)

And the stylesheet looks like this:

<xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes" omit-xml-declaration="yes"/>
<xsl:param name="source"/>

<xsl:template match="*">
   source: <xsl:value-of select="$source"/>

But the value doesn't get passed.
