yes, and yes.

It should be possible to do like your example (I think :) but it's definitively possible to create a "local" variable related to current node:

<xsl:for-each select="$lines">
  <xsl:variable name="type" select="substring(., 1, 3)"/>
     <xsl:apply-templates select="$field_definitions/*[@type = $type]"/>

Is it possible to do a function inside of an expression?

Here is my XSL code:

<xsl:for-each select="$lines">


<xsl:apply-templates select="$field_definitions/*[@type = (substring(., 1,

<xsl:sort select="field_no" order="ascending" data-type="number"/>

<xsl:with-param name="current_context" select="."/>




My question is in regards to the substring function in the apply-templates

The current context of the $lines variable will look something like this:

"AA0 12345 fdsajl129..."

I'm trying to match the first three characters of that string.

If I can't do this, can I create a variable for this for-each ONLY?

Thanks again,
