Simply don't specify any type for the $FOO variable:

 <xsl:variable name="FOO">
  <page>Page number 1</page>
  <page>Page number 2</page>
  <page>Page number 3</page>
  <page>Page number 4</page>
  <page>Page number 5</page>
  <page>Page number 6</page>
  <page>Page number 7</page>
 </xsl:variable>

The type by default is a document node, and in this case the provided
transformation produces the expected result.


Cheers,
Dimitre
