Oops don't I feel like a heel.  After reading more of
the list and looking at some other samples I realized
I was making it too hard.  I just switched to:
  <xsl:template name="createBaseFrameFileName">
    <xsl:value-of select="concat($outputDir,
        $fileSep, @name, '_index', '.html')"/>
  </xsl:template>
 
And calling it thus:
  <xsl:variable name="generatedName">
    <xsl:call-template 
          name="createBaseFrameFileName"/>
  </xsl:variable>

At the moment it does not look like I will have to
pass another element to this method (other than the
context) but what if I do?  Since passing the element
as a parameter and then using '$element[@name]' did
not work is there another way?

Thanks,

Ian
