Does a variable created in a template, is visible to other templates ?

No, section 11.5 of XSLT explicitly states a variable in a template is only visible to the variable declaration's following siblings and their descendants.

I hope this helps.

This is something that I have somewhat speculated over. As Dimitre pointed out, there is no things such as template children in xslt. What does the following siblings and their descendants then consist of?.

I have read (not all of) relevant books, but I might not have understood this issue, if I have seen it.
