XSLT Stylesheet parameter string to nodeset

If I setup a XSLT Stylesheet parameter and pass a well-formed XML string, then try and perform a nodeset function, it seems that the nodeset function does not work. All I get is a string back - not a nodeset. Whereas, if I assign a variable in the XSLT and type in a well formed XML string, the nodeset function does work. Any ideas?

i think you need to assign node set to parameter, try to use addParameter("innerXml",Node);

The XSLT parameter functionality does not convert types.  If the data is passed in as a String, there is no way to convert them into nodesets.  Some XSLT parsers allow you to pass parameters as NodeSets, but you need to parse the XML into a nodeset before passing to the XSLT parser.

If your XSLT processor does not support nodesets, or you do not want to tie yourself to a specific parser, pass the URL to the XML file as the parameter and use the document() function to open the file.
