[xsl] commandline parameters

From: "Laura Jenkins" <xsl_list@----------->

i want to make use of the commandline xalan parameter -PARAM for the xsl 

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" 

<xsl:template match="/">

<xsl:param name="commandparam" select=""/>

<xsl:value-of select="$commandparam"/>



My questions are:

1. If i want to read the parameter through -PARAM, is the above xsl correct?

2. what would be the command that runs in the commandline to pass on the 
parameter. would it be something like this..

  java org.apache.xalan.xslt.Process -IN commandlineexp.xml

-XSL commandlineexp.xsl -OUT multi -PARAM commandparam commandparamvalue?

please let me know if i am wrong and in that case the correct syntax of the 
commandline statement and the xsl structure
