    variable

    The <xsl:variable> element declares a global or local variable in a stylesheet and gives it a value. Because XSLT permits no side-effects, once the value of the variable has been established, it remains the same until the variable goes out of scope

    Syntax

    <xsl:variable name=NAME select=EXPRESSION >
    	TEMPLATE
    </xsl:variable> 

    Required Attributes

    name
    Gives the variable a name.

    Optional Attributes

    select
    Defines the value of the variable through an XPath expression. If the element contains a template, this attribute is ignored.

    Type

    Top-level or instruction. If it occurs as a top-level element, the variable is global in scope, and can be accessed throughout the document. If it occurs within a template, the variable is local in scope, accessible only within the template in which it appears.

    Defined

    XSLT, section 11.

    Gecko support

    Supported.
