I think the list only filters attachments due to virus concerns.

It doesn't have to be a variable--it can be any valid XPath expression.  An
AVT is simply a parameter whose value is computed at run-time.  They can be
used within attributes of any literal result elements, and within attributes
of a limited number of XSLT elements.  See the XSLT 1.0 spec at
http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt#attribute-value-templates for more information.

Enclose the AVT within another set of curly braces:

<input class="button" onclick="lgotoent('report.php?view={{@idx}}')"/>
