Off the cuff, assuming something/@fileref, 

         <xsl:template match="something">
                 <xsl:variable name="ref" select="@fileref"/>
                 <xsl:variable name="mike"
                         <xsl:when test="$mike">
                         <xsl:value-of select="$mike/@autocad">
