You're making it far too difficult!

Just do select="id($navDivID)/foo/bar"

Note also, when you write

<xsl:variable name="x">
  <xsl:value-of select="foo/bar"/>
</xsl:variable>

this is a very convoluted and inefficient way of saying

<xsl:variable name="x" select="foo/bar"/>

The two aren't absolutely identical, which is why the optimizer can't simple rewrite the first as the second, but if you use the value as a string then you'll get the same result.
