Yes, but this is the only way to do it in XSLT 1.0. In XSLT 2.0, due
to general steps in XPath 2.0, we'll be able to do:


which has the advantage that the results of the evaluated path will be
unioned together, so even if there's more than one node being held by
the $schema variable, but they're all in the same document, you'll
only get one of each within the sequence.

The other method that you could try is:

  saxon:evaluate(concat('$schema', $xsd-path))

or, if that doesn't work (I can't remember whether Saxon allows
variables within saxon:evaluate() or not), you could use:

<xsl:variable name="schema"
  select="'document(//@xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation)'" />
  select="saxon:evaluate(concat($schema, $xsd-path))" />
