Hi, experts

is there any way to use conditions in XSL/XPATH in attribute's value?
I need something like this:

...
<div id='lr-{@id}' style="display:{IF @expanded='yes' THEN 'block' ELSE 'none'}">
...

At this time I have this code:
But with more variables comes lot of code. :(
<xsl:variable name="visibility">
  <xsl:choose>
	  <xsl:when test="@expanded='yes'">
	   <xsl:value-of select="'block'"/>
	  </xsl:when>
	  <xsl:otherwise>
	   <xsl:value-of select="'none'"/>
	  </xsl:otherwise>
 </xsl:choose>
</xsl:variable>

If you would be using XSLT2, you can have the choice in your XPath...
the code would not be far off from what you have in your pseudo code

In XSLT1, you would need the xsl:choose approach
very close to what you did, except that you don't necessarily need the variable, you could use an xsl:attribute

<div id='lr-{@id}'>
   <xsl:attribute name="style=">
          <xsl:text>display:</xsl:text>
          <xsl:choose>
        <xsl:when test="@expanded='yes'">
           <xsl:text>block</xsl:text>
        </xsl:when>
        <xsl:otherwise>
            <xsl:text>none</xsl:text>
        </xsl:otherwise>
          </xsl:choose>
   </xsl:attribute>

{IF @expanded='yes' THEN 'block' ELSE 'none'}">

you just need lowercase, the rest fits
    <div id='lr-{@id}' style="display:{if(@expanded='yes') then ('block') else ('none')}"/>
