Looks like the stylesheet param method only accepts a key as a string and the expression as a string as well. This is a wrapper over a Xalan/Xerces C/C++ (Xalan1.5, Xerces2.6) SetStyleSheetParam (const STD(wstring) & inKey, const STD(wstring) & inExpression); So I am stuck with passing the contents as a string.
