Personally, when this is needed, I pass these values from template to
template using parameters (xsl:with-parameter works also with
xsl:apply-templates, not only with xsl:call-template).

This is sometimes possible...
If your variable has a single value which you can define your variable
outside any template (even through a complex XPath expression), it will
be global (but has to have a "single" value since you won't be able to
change it.

Hope this helps.
