thanks for your replies and you are right I should describe my problem more
in detail!

The string contains HTML code in between and I want the 123.456 be printed
out in bold characters. I tried both <xsl:element name="b"> and <b>

<xsl:template match="Language/*">
  // This works fine - BOTH lines show the number bold
  This is my account <xsl:element name="b">123.456</xsl:element> now closed
  This is my account <b>123.456</b> now closed
  // This doesn't work - displays the number BUT not bold
  <xsl:variable name="wholestring">This is my account <xsl:element
name="b">123.456</xsl:element> now closed</xsl:variable>
  <xsl:value-of select="string($wholestring)"/>

  <xsl:variable name="wholestring">This is my account <b>123.456</b> now
  <xsl:value-of select="string($wholestring)"/>

The reason for the variable is that I want to pass it to another template
<xsl:call-template name="getConfirmationPage">
  <xsl:with-param name="Header" select="Title/Text"/>
  <xsl:with-param name="Title" select="$wholestring"/>

The <xsl:copy-of select="$wholestring"/> throws the following error
	at com.icl.saxon.expr.FragmentValue.copy(FragmentValue.java:444)
	at com.icl.saxon.style.XSLCopyOf.process(XSLCopyOf.java:65)
	at com.icl.saxon.style.XSLStyleSheet.process(XSLStyleSheet.java:472)

	at com.icl.saxon.Controller.transform(Controller.java:866)
	at com.icl.saxon.Controller.transform(Controller.java:901)

Any ideas? Again thanks a lot,
