I'm getting an error when trying to pass the current node into a template using <xsl:with-param name="current" select="current()"/> or <xsl:with-param name="current" select="."/>

The place where I'm trying to access it
<xsl:apply-templates mode="structure1" select="$current"/> is where I'm getting an error message using Saxon indicating that the select attribute is expecting node and what it's getting is xs:string.

What am I doing wrong here?

I think we need more code fragments to see ... nothing strikes me as incorrect in the two snippets you've given.

If you are using <xsl:with-param/> inside of <xsl:apply-templates/> (you don't say if you are using <xsl:call-template or not) make sure you don't have any built-in templates being triggered between the processing of the two templates. If so, the built-in template will not pass the node parameter, the template with the parameter declaration will get called by the built-in template with no parameters, the default value for an empty parameter declaration is string, and you will have an empty string passed for the <xsl:apply-templates/>.

But that is just a guess based on your evidence.

I hope this helps.
