It's best to say explictly when you are using xslt2 as otherwise you may
get an XSLt1 answer (which would be very different in this case) xslt1 is
still the official version of xslt.

Two things in xslt2 make this far easier than xslt1, you can have
sequences of strings in a variable, and you can use variables in match
patterns, so

<xsl:template match="*[@style=$fonts]/text()">

does just what you ask.
