Ah--this may be the crux of my lack of understanding of sequences and
their implications in XSLT 2.
So the xsl:variable results in a temporary document--now that I look for
it, I see that's explained in 9.4 "Creating implicit document nodes",
which I probably never would have read if I hadn't started this
discussion (since I would only every want to create document nodes
*explicitly* why would I care about creating them implicitly?) :-)
Now I get it (I think).
And thanks to both Andrew and Mike for pointing out the XPath
alternative--I still have a bit of XSLT/XPath 1 brain damage and I
forget that XPath 2 is much more capable than before.
