To be blunt, not really.
This could be interpreted in two ways:
1) "I need to get a value from a node and store it in a variable/parameter"
with the easy answer of "well, use xsl:varaible or xsl:parameter".
2) (the more likely case) "I want to be able to execute a
command-line parameter into the stylesheet
Which has a couple of flavors of it's own.
i) You actually want to pass a node set in (not a node's value)
ie (picking a roughly Xalan sytanx just for a quick example):
xsltprocess -IN foo.xml -XSL trans.xsl -OUT bar.xml -PARAM
-- there should be something in the archives about this
ii) You want to specifiy a node within the document via a XPATH string
xsltprocess -IN foo.xml -XSL trans.xsl -OUT bar.xml -PARAM "//ul/li/foo"
-- might be something in the archives about this
I'm sure there's more ways to interpret your one-sentence description
of the problem that I haven't thought of. Perhaps an example of what
you want to do would help.
