At some stage the XML string has to be parsed to turn it into a tree. I
would normally recommend doing this outside the stylesheet, which you can do
in Saxon for example by calling the method
StaticQueryContext.buildDocument(). (There are other ways, that give more
control, but that one's the simplest). The resulting document node can then
be passed in using the Transformer.setParameter() method.
An alternative is to pass a raw string as the parameter, and then parse it
from within the stylesheet using the saxon:parse() extension function.
