[xsl] Re: Chain of XSL Transformations

Capture the result of a transformation in a xsl:variable, then convert its
RTF value into a regular nodeset (tree) using (in your case) the
msxsl:node-set() extension function, then apply on this result the next

This is a routine procedure done frequently by many XSLT programmers.
