okay got that point (parenthesis). But still that does not work for me since
somehow the string in filter_value is not understood as sequence!
So if I now use:

 <xsl:if test="*[name()= $filter and . = $filter_value]b>

or as Michael suggested

<xsl:if test="*[name()= $filter][. = $filter_value]b>

it only matches the first of the two in the sequence if I use

<xsl:param name="filter_value" as="xs:string*" select="'Log', bInfo'b/>

to pass the parameter! Even an:

<xsl:value-of select=b$filter_valueb/>

only returns: bLogb where I would expect it to return the whole parameter!
I seem to still miss some crucial point in making filter_value being
understood as sequence here!?

least one item in the sequence that is equal to the value. The `some`
expression is only needed if you want the contains check.
