....that's right: 

my task is as follows, fully explained:

this template gets the contents of an element which occur more than once:

<xsl:template match="INSTANCE" name="joseph">
   <xsl:for-each select="key('tracker', 'Referenced Document')">
select="substring-before(substring-after(.,'&quot;\&quot;'), '&quot;')"/>

i try to hand these over to a variable first:

<xsl:variable name="frank">
<xsl:call-template name="joseph">

and finally i want to put in the variable in the following replace function,
which is within another template...:

<xsl:template match="ATTRIBUTE" name="koarl">
        <xsl:call-template name="replace-string">
            <xsl:with-param name="text" select="$frank"/>
            <xsl:with-param name="from" select="'\\'"/>
            <xsl:with-param name="to" select="'\'"/>
    <xsl:template name="replace-string">
        <xsl:param name="text"/>
        <xsl:param name="from"/>
        <xsl:param name="to"/>
            <xsl:when test="contains($text, $from)">
                <xsl:variable name="before" select="substring-before($text,
                <xsl:variable name="after" select="substring-after($text,
                <xsl:variable name="prefix" select="concat($before, $to)"/>
                <xsl:value-of select="$before"/>
                <xsl:value-of select="$to"/>
                <xsl:call-template name="replace-string">
                    <xsl:with-param name="text" select="$after"/>
                    <xsl:with-param name="from" select="$from"/>
                    <xsl:with-param name="to" select="$to"/>
                <xsl:value-of select="$text"/>

all of these work perfectly, except the variable "frank" that is put in as
the outcomes of all the for-each loops in the first template put together...
