Great this was exactly what I was looking for, BUT it does not work for me! There seam to be two problems:

1. Saxon complains about bsomeb after the bandb:

   XPST0003: XPath syntax error at char 21 on line 279 in {*[name()=$filter and some $}:
     Unexpected token "some" in path expression

Sorry, the expression needs parenthesis

<xsl:if test="*[name()=$filter and (some $value in $filter_values satisfies contains(., $value))]b>

<xsl:param name="filter_values" as="xs:string*" select="'Log', 'Info'b/>

If you want a comparison with "=" then you can simply use

<xsl:if test="*[name()= $filter and . = $filter_values]">

as the "=" comparison between a value and a sequence is true if there is at least one item in the sequence that is equal to the value. The `some` expression is only needed if you want the contains check.
