You've fallen into the trap of thinking that variables are macros. I suspect
this happens to people who recognize the "$" sign as something they've used
in various job control or shell languages. You can't substitute variables
textually into an XPath expression, any more than in Java you could write

String op = "+";
int result = 2 op 2;
