Thanks Mike.  I can just pass the contents of the variable into the
template.  It's not as elegent as what I was trying to do, but it will still


No, it's not possible. All variable references in XSLT must explicitly spell
out the name of the variable; you can't calculate it.

In Perl you'd just do ${$temp}. Frustrating, isn't it?

What is the problem you are trying to use this approach to solve? There
be another way.
