Ok, some weird results,

<xsl:message><xsl:copy-of select="$file-nbn-set"/></xsl:message>

gives me

1360256741376 1360256741377 1360256741378

So first is good as it shows the structure
2 and 3 are not what I want. I guess it just selects multiple NBN's as
position() will evaluate to true?. It does work however when putting
in a number like 2 for position()


<nbn><xsl:value-of select="$file-nbn-set/nbn-set/nbn[$index]"/></nbn>

Works ok

How come I cant use position() as index directly?
