Man, thanks for the wake up call, I really needed it,
must've been sleepwalking through that.  I was so
concentrated on trying to pass the parameter so that
the template can use only one parameter for all the
different keys I will be passing in, I forgot the fact
that key is a global itself.

So, instead of passing the key, I will find out the
parent element of the current node and use xsl:when to
determine the correct key to use.

Much thanks,
