Default The difference between xsl:variable and xsl:param

Hallo everybody,

There is a slightly difference between xsl:param and xsl:variable but I really would like to have a definite definition about the difference between these variables. Ok I know it for example you can use a parameter in a template like calling xsl:with-param and the other features of xsl:param but a clear definition with an example would have been great.

(PS: This time I didn't begin with hallo Michael but I know you are going to answer it as usual:D)

The difference is that parameters can be set by the calling code (using with-param in the case of a template parameter, or from the application API in the case of a global stylesheet parameter); variables can't. In other respects, parameters and variables are used/referenced in exactly the same way.
