Depends what you are using.

msxsl.exe takes command line parameters param=value.

If you are using Java, you use something like this....

        Source xsltSrc = new StreamSource(file);
        Transformer transformer = transformerFactory.newTransformer(xsltSrc);
        transformer.setParameter("param","value");

Hi,
I am using XSL.

I got the answer.
Here is my solution:

                <xsl:param name="lang">EN</xsl:param>

            <xsl:variable name="language">
            
                  <xsl:choose>
                        <xsl:when test="$lang = 'EN'">
                              <xsl:text>EN</xsl:text>
                        </xsl:when>
                                                                <xsl:when test="$lang = ' ' ">
                              <xsl:text>EN</xsl:text>
                        </xsl:when>
                                                                <xsl:when test="$lang = 'FR'">
                              <xsl:text>FR</xsl:text>
                        </xsl:when>
                        <xsl:otherwise>
                              <xsl:value-of select="$lang"/>
                        </xsl:otherwise>
                  </xsl:choose>
            </xsl:variable>
