It does not work this way.

I assume you define the array in your XSL-T styiesheet? If yes, try it
this way:

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:local="data local to this file" ...>

  <local:period ID='12M'>1</local:period>

<xsl:value-of select="document()/local:benefit/period[@ID=$BP]" />

I'm sorry if the syntax turnes out to be not quite correct, but I dont
have any XSL-T documentation in reach.
