Like Ken suggested, do this instead:


<xsl:call-template name="translateDcml">
   <xsl:with-param name="factor">
     <xsl:choose>
       <xsl:when test="FCDecimalPlace  != ''">
         <xsl:value-of select="FCDecimalPlace"/>
       </xsl:when>
       <xsl:otherwise>
         <xsl:value-of select="LCDecimalPlace"/>
       </xsl:otherwise>
     </xsl:choose>
   </xsl:with-param>
</xsl:call-template>

Or (XSLT 2.0):


<xsl:with-param name="factor"
  select="(FCDecimalPlace[.!=''],LCDecimalPlace)[1]"/>

But probably better

select="(FCDecimalPlace[string(.)],LCDecimalPlace)[1]"/>

Or (XSLT 1.0)

<xsl:with-param name="factor"
  select="FCDecimalPlace[normalize-space()] |
    LCDecimalPlace)[not(normalize-space(current()/FCDecimalPlace)]"/>

Cheers,
Wendell
