You may be having trouble from the other side; . is the context value,
and will be understood as the string value of the element found by the
match, and that might not be what you expect.  It's pretty easy to get
some white space in there, for example, and = is an exact match. (You
won't, for example, match "info" with that filter value.)

<xsl:param name="filter_value" as="xs:string*" select="('Log', 'Info')"/>

is what I'd expect for explicitly creating a sequence.

<xsl:sequence select="$filter_value[2], $filter_value[1]"/>

Should show you whether or not you've really got a sequence;
<xsl:value-of/> creates a text node, which isn't what you want because
various rules about turning the sequence into text come into play.
