xsl:attribute creates an attribute in the result tree, not in the stylesheet.

You want

<xsl:variable name="x" as="xs:string">
  <xsl:apply-templates.../>
</xsl:variable>
<xsl:result-document href="{x}"/>

Alternatively, encapsulate the call of apply-templates in a function, as I suggested in my response.

Not sure how I can tackle this one. Probably this was the reason why I chose the function approach in the first place

         <xsl:result-document method="xml">
             <xsl:attribute name="href">
                 <xsl:apply-templates select="." mode="getURI"/>
             </xsl:attribute>
             ....
         </xsl:result-document>


This would have worked <xsl:result-document method="xml" href="{znapz:getURI(.)}"> .... </xsl:result-document>

Any thoughts?

Damn...

I was already thinking along those lines but I wasn't sure if such approach would work.


So let's assume I needed an uber-function that would return a sequence of URI's, would sth like this work?


I want a list of all URI's stored in a variable uniqueURIs.  Since I can't use mode in a select statement like
<xsl:variable name="uniqueURIs" select="/maximo:*" mode="getURI"/>

I will probably need to call a function?
<xsl:variable name="uniqueURIs" select="znapz:getUniqueURIs(/maximo:*)"/>
or just apply-templates in the variable:

<xsl:variable name="uniqueURIs" as="xs:anyURI+">
   <xsl:apply-templates select="/maximo:*" mode="getURI"/>
</
