XSL variable help -- not(contains(.. ?

Hi,

   I have the following XSL below and its not quite right.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0">
<xsl:variable name="mmname" select="normalize-space(attr[@tag='00081090'])"/>
 <xsl:template match="/dataset">
	<xsl:choose>
	  <xsl:when test="$mmname,not(contains('IntelliSpace PACS'))">
		 <destination aet="GINKGO_JH" priority="high"/>
	  </xsl:when>
	</xsl:choose>
 </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

I know that there is something wrong when I'm calling the variable, but here is what I am wanting to accomplish.
When the variable $mmname does NOT contain 'IntelliSpace PACS' I want to do what is after the <xsl: when test>  I just don't know how to properly place eveything in the the '<xsl:when test' line.  Do I need an equals in between the variable or how would be the best way to go about this?

I can't tell it:  <xsl:when test!="$mmname='IntelliSpace PACS'"> because sometimes the last word changes.

What the variable is doing above is getting the value from the attr tag '00081090'

thanks

contains is a function that takes two argumenst, like shown above

You have not shown us the XML but

<xsl:variable name="mmname" select="normalize-space(attr[@tag='00081090'])"/>
conflicts with
<xsl:template match="/dataset">

the root is either "attr" or "dataset" but not both

I guess (without seeing the source XML) that you need
<xsl:variable name="mmname" select="normalize-space(//attr[@tag='00081090'])"/>

Yes, your right.  showing all of the XML would  make a lot of difference.  I apologize!

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0">
<xsl:variable name="mmname" select="normalize-space(attr[@tag='00081090'])"/>
 <xsl:template match="/dataset">
	  </xsl:if> -->
	<xsl:choose>
	  <xsl:when test="$mmname,not(contains('IntelliSpace PACS'))">
		 <destination aet="GINKGO_JH" priority="high"/>
	  </xsl:when>
	</xsl:choose>
 </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>
