RE: How dynamic is XSL?

Ok - I now belive (thanks to Linda van...) that I have to use templates
instead. I'm working on it. There's still one thing that puzzels me. How do
I take values from the XML, and place them as values in the result via XSL:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?xml-stylesheet href="example.xsl" type="text/xsl" media="explorer"?>
<?cocoon-process type="xslt"?>
  <cardtitle>WAP XML Test</cardtitle>

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
  <xsl:template match="/"> <!-- root of XML document -->
        <do type="prev" label="Back">
     	<xsl:variable name="v1"><xsl:value-of select="cardid"/></xsl:variable>
     	<xsl:variable name="v2"><xsl:value-of
        <card id="{$v1}" title"{$v2}"> <!-- dosent work -->
          <p align="center">
            <img src="<xsl:value-of select="imgsrc"/>" alt="<xsl:value-of
select="imgalt"/>"/> <!-- dosent work -->

No.  Please show a sample XML file.

Are you working with XHTML documents?
