xsl variables

I am trying to create an image tag in an xsl stylesheet. It's path will include a variable called sURL which defines whether the server is production or development. This is the line of code as it was in ASP.

"https://<%=sURL%>/images/dotted.gif"

Now I need to do this with xsl.
How do I get it to replace sURL with a value set in an include file on an asp page.

So far my environment is very simple. An xml page with a record, an XSL sheet, and an asp page which loads both, and does the transformnode.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Dan

You could use the AddParameter method from IXSLProcessor like this (from MSDN):

Dim xslt As New Msxml2.XSLTemplate
Dim xslDoc As New Msxml2.FreeThreadedDOMDocument
Dim xmlDoc As New Msxml2.DOMDocument
Dim xslProc As IXSLProcessor
xslDoc.async = False
xslDoc.Load "sample.xsl"
Set xslt.stylesheet = xslDoc
xmlDoc.async = False
xmlDoc.Load "books.xml"
Set xslProc = xslt.createProcessor()
xslProc.input = xmlDoc
xslProc.addParameter "param1", "Hello"
xslProc.Transform
MsgBox xslProc.output
Sample.xsl

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0">
   <xsl:output method="html"/>
   <xsl:param name="param1"/>
  <xsl:template match="/">
      The parameter value was: <xsl:value-of select="$param1"/>
  </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>
[C/C++]
C/C++ Syntax
HRESULT addParameter (BSTR baseName, VARIANT parameter, BSTR
namespaceURI);
Parameters
baseName [in]
The name that will be used inside the style sheet to identify the parameter context.
parameter [in]
A number, Boolean, string, node list, or node. Passing in a single node will produce a node list that contains one node (shortcut).
namespaceURI [in, optional]
Optional namespace.
C/C++ Return Values
E_FAIL if readyState is READYSTATE_INTERACTIVE.

Example
#import "msxml3.dll"
using namespace MSXML2;

#define CHECK_AND_RELEASE(pInterface)  \
if(pInterface) \
   {\
pInterface->Release();\
pInterface = NULL;\
   }\

#define RELEASE(pInterface)  \
   {\
pInterface->Release();\
pInterface = NULL;\
   }\

Here is an example with javascript and "xml data island":

<html><head><title>XSL test</title></head><body>

<!-- ********************* XML ********************* -->

<XML id="oXml">
<X>
<GROUPA>
<A>1</A>
<A>2</A>
<A>3</A>
<A>4</A>
</GROUPA>
<GROUPB>
<A>1</A>
<A>3</A>
</GROUPB>
</X>
</XML>

<!-- ********************* XSL ********************* -->

<XML id="oXSL">
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
         version="1.0" >

<xsl:output method="html" indent="yes" encoding="UTF-8" version="1.0"/>

<xsl:template match = "/">
A from GROUPA not in GROUPB:<br/>
<xsl:for-each select="//GROUPA/A[ not( .=(//GROUPB/A)) ]">
     <li><xsl:value-of select="."/></li>
</xsl:for-each>

</xsl:template>

</xsl:stylesheet>
</XML>

<!-- ********************* HTML ********************* -->

<div id="DivLookUp" align="center"></div>

<script language="javascript">
    DivLookUp.innerHTML=oXml.transformNode( oXSL.documentElement);
</script>

</body></html>
