If you go

	<xsl:variable name="tempb">
		<xsl:value-of select="'b1','b2','b3'"/>

Then you generate a sequence of length 1 consisting of a document node,
this document node has a single text node child consisting of teh result
of applying value-of.

So don't do that, either use a select attribute as in tempa or use as="item()*"
also (as in xslt1) xsl:value-of always generates a text node, and here
you want a sequence so use xsl:sequence instead:

	<xsl:variable name="tempb" as="item()*">
		<xsl:sequence select="'b1','b2','b3'"/>

same in teh call-template case:

	<xsl:message select="$tempb[1]"/>
	<xsl:variable name="tempc" as="item()*">
		<xsl:call-template name="processName">
	<xsl:message select="$tempc[1]"/>
<xsl:template name="processName">
	<xsl:sequence select="'c1','c2','c3'"/>
