That's a long-winded and expensive way of doingSorry about this: What I am doing is this: <xsl:variable name="filename"> <xsl:value-of select="//filename"/> </xsl:variable>
I suspect you are getting the error when you use the variable, not when you declare it. I imagine you are using the variable as an argument to the doc() or document() function. The argument to this is expected to be a valid URI, and non-ASCII characters are not valid in URIs: try calling encode-for-uri() first:
Where the //filename points to: <filename>RES_FF_20110924_084810</filename>
Error I am getting is: 2012-01-16 09:55:57: An Exception has occured: 'file:///j:/NTB-Normalizer/xml/Travresultater/RES_X_20101015_095157.xml' is not a valid windows path or URI. at xsl:variable J:\NTB-Normalizer\xslt\Travdata\Travdata.xsl

It does not create this error when I am parsing/converting files that does not have Nordic characters.
As said in the initial mail: I can do this quick'n dirty by creating my own filename, but I kind of does not want to do that as I (or someone else) might have to get in touch with the originator of the file and therefor it is a good thing to tell them which file we have problems with.

I am getting an error when transforming a file where I am storing a filenam= e in a variable. The filename sometimes contains letters that are quite com= mon in Nordic names (æ and so on). One solution is that I create new filenames, but I don't really want to do = that - yet). So I am wondering: How do I work around this issue?
You need to say exactly what you did and exactly how it failed.
If the issue concerns non-ASCII filenames then it may also be dependent on your operating system.
