Use the node-set extension function for your processor - or if it supports exslt common then use that for the extra portability.
Other than that you could use function-available and a choose-when to choose the correct node-set extension for the main big players, but that's a bit tiresome.
The other way is to use document('') to return the stylesheet itself eg:
<xsl:variable name="RTF"> some constructed nodes </xsl:variable>
<xsl:apply-templates select="document('')//xsl:variable[@name = RTF]"/>

I'm wondering if someone can point out how to use tree fragments as node sets in XSLT 1.0. Some processors (Saxon) seem to handle tree fragments without any additional work but others (Sablotron and libxslt) don't seem to like them very much.
I've read the documentation on exslt.org and tried to implement the conversion of tree fragments to node sets using their documentation, but I just cannot get it to work (complains about not being able to find the imported file).
Ideally, I'd like to avoid using extensions altogether, but I realize that that may be impossible.
