are you sure?

You don't show your use of the variable but if you are using xsl:value-of
note that is defined to always return the string value, so never element
nodes, use xsl:copy-of.

It's not possible to do further processing (or any Xpath queries) on 
a constructed result tree fragment in a variable in XSLT 1.
Almost every XSLT engine has a node-set() extension function to remove
this restriction though.

I seem to recall it's called nodeset not node-set in xalan.
