Default embedded <xsl:element> into <xsl:with-param>

i would like to change the font color of a string,which can be noun concept or verb concept.e.g."qualifiedDriver" or "workAt".to splitting it into atomic has been settled.different concept type will be displayed in different color.so first thing to do is changing its color,then splitting it.but browser reports following error.Error loading stylesheet: XPath parse failure: Name or Nodetype test expected.but i know <xsl:element> appears as child element inside <xsl:with-param> can anyone help me? below is code.
<xsl:call-template name="split">
  <xsl:with-param name="input" select="">
    <xsl:element name="font">
        <xsl:attribute name="color">green</xsl:attribute>
        <xsl:value-of select="Val"/>

Omit the select="" attribute.

Node also, you could be a lot more concise and readable:

<xsl:with-param name="input">

     <xsl:value-of select="Val"/>
