There is not much documentation on using script in XSLT with MSXML but 
as far as I can tell you need to pass the document into such a function 
e.g. with JScript you reserve a formal argument
   function f (nodeList, otherArg) {
     var node =;
     if (node != null) {
       return node.selectNodes(otherArg);
and with XPath/XSLT you pass in the root node if you want to have the 
document e.g.
   jsPrefix:f(/, '..')
