[xsl] My Intent: Template to generate RTF

If you've been following the thread:
"Template to return XML"
I wanted to explain my intent just a bit more.  I did manage to set my
variable, not with a template call but a fairly complex *select*

OMG!  Thinking of another solution as I type!  The *complex* select
statement, this string can be returned by a template... yes/no?

Anyways, this is what I ended up with for a variable declaration:
<xsl:variable name="xmTmplt"

Its a bit messy, but it works (is this common?  maybe this isn't messy, but
is the most *complex* xpath expression I've written so far).
So my intent, was to wrap up the messy expression into a template.  The
template would be responsible for returning a correct (corresponding)
$DOC_TEMPLATE_XML (this is basically a footprint to the data source (uggg...
struggling to talk the talk here, sorry).

So, the above varialbe decleration was to look something like this:
<xsl:variable name="xmTmplt" select="A_CALL_TO_A_TEMPLATE"/>

Now I'm wondering if this will work:
<xsl:variable name="xmTmplt" select="$A_COMPLEX_XPATH_STRING_VALUE"/>

This, however, requires an additional line of code, the variable
decleration.  This could be global... I'm going to play around with this
*thinking outloud a bit here*
