Several points:
1) $chandoc/. means exactly the same as $chandoc
2) The expression you are trying to evaluate is the text contents of
document TSInsertBER.xml, which you haven't shown us
3) Whatever the result of the saxon:evaluate(), it will be exactly the same
each time round the <xsl:for-each> loop, because there's nothing inside the
loop that depends on the current node.
