Can the name attribute of a xsl:call-template be a xsl variable or xml tag?

I want the calling template name as a variable.

like
<xsl:call-template name="$tname"/> (But this will give an error)

How to achieve this?

dsraja,

Calling a template whose name is decided at run-time is not possible in XSLT.

For more info see the spec at:
