Default $@src

Hello again, another basic question...

<poop src="asdf" />

<xsl:variables name="asdf">asdfasdf</xsl:variable>

During the transformation I would like something to work like $@src... like it converts the value of the @src to a string that is then interpreted as the name of the variable... so $@src = $asdf in the previous example.

Is this possible?

Sorry, I just found out about XSLT like a week ago :/

You can refer to an attribute as simply @src, provided you are in the correct context.

You can assign an attribute to a variable like so:

<xsl:variable name="poopsrc" select="/poop/@src" />

No, it's not possible. Despite the use of $ to indicate a variable reference, XSLT is more like a compiled language than a shell-script language. Variables represent values, they don't represent bits of expression text, and their names are not accessible at run-time.
