This *should be* obvious, but sometimes the obvious isn't always to this observer. :)
<xsl:call-template name="detail"> <xsl:with-param name="category">markup</xsl:with-param> </xsl:call-template>
<xsl:template name="detail"> <xsl:param name="category" /> <xsl:for-each select='/config/option[@class="$category"]'> ... </xsl:for-each> </xsl:template>
The for-each selects *nothing*, but if I change "$category" to the hard-coded string "markup", it works fine!
The `$category` parameter does come through, or so
<xsl:value-of select='$category' />
tells me. So why does does a hard-coded category work, while "$category" fails?
You don't need quotes around it if its a variable, compare: x = a + b; //a and b are variables x = "a" + "b"; // giving "ab" as a and b are strings
