Thanks Wendell,

  I tried below suggestion, but getting output like..
  <input type="hidden" name="varPass" value="99999">schite

instead of..
  <input type="hidden" name="varPass" value="schite">

- flashlight

You're on the right track:

<xsl:variable name="testVar">
     <xsl:test if="@colID=5">
       <xsl:value-of select="@value"/>

Or sometimes there are more concise ways to achieve the behavior you want:

<input type="hidden" name="varPass" value="99999">
   <xsl:copy-of select="@value[current()/@colID=5]"/>

No variable needed -- value defaults to 99999 unless your colID is 5, in 
which case @value is copied.
