Thanks to Christopher and Ken for the quick answers. I add a variable for the
eid attribute value and got the results I was looking for. - Craig

              <xsl:for-each select="subSubTopic">
                <xsl:if test="@softwareContextID">
                  <xsl:variable name="myEID" select="@eid"/>
                  <xsl:for-each select="tokenize(@softwareContextID,' ')">
<!-- NMTOKENS -->
                    <xsl:comment> token: <xsl:value-of
select="."/></xsl:comment>
                    <xsl:if test="upper-case(.)!='DEFAULTLANDINGPAGE'">
                      <context contextMappingID="{.}" docset="{$alias}"
file="{$deliverable}.htm#{$myEID}"/>
                    </xsl:if>
                  </xsl:for-each> <!-- NMTOKEN -->
                </xsl:if>
              </xsl:for-each>  <!-- subSubTopic -->

I can tell you why you get the error (don't kick yourself too hard), but how
to fix it is up to you based on what you need.

That sets the context to be a string.

And there you are trying to obtain the eid= attribute of the string.

And so you get the message:

>Required item type of the context item for the attribute axis is
>node(); supplied value has item type xs:string

My guess is you'll have to put the @eid into a variable when the context is
subSubTopic before tokenizing and then use the variable.

I hope this helps.
