Beware xslt has no access to the tags in the source document, and can
not directly generate tags into the result. It's thinking about tags
that leads you to trying to use d-o-e.

If you posted a small (10 or so) line xqueryx input file, and explained
what transformation you wanted to do, and what result you needed, no
doubt someone would help show you a cleaner, more portable solution.

I can't work out from your posting what transfomation you want to do,
both input and output need to be xqueryx?

You don't _have_ to code it that way, you could express it as
every $n in (number11,number2,number3,number4) satisfies $n=10
