    building a hyperlink with xslt

    I am attempting to build a dynmic hyperlink. Within my xslt, I pass a string to a java pgm and it returns the ID. I would like to use this returned value in a hyperlink. My xslt looks something like this:

    <xsl:variable name="moFilePath" select="GENERIC-CONTENT/FILE-ATTACH" />
    <xsl:variable name="thisID" select="java:getFileMO($helper,$moFilePath)" />

    <a href="/AppConsole/secure/cmaViewer.do?spfAId=$thisID">
    <xsl:value-of select="$moFilePath" />
    </a>

    When I do a view source of the page, I get the following:
    <a href="/AppConsole/secure/cmaViewer.do?spfAId=$thisID"></a>

    The $thisID and $moFilePath don't get translated.

    The java pgm does return the correct ID. I have displayed this on the page and now moving on to the part to build the URL.

    Of course I found a good example minutes after I posted my problem.

    In case anyone else looks at this and needs the answer:

    <xsl:variable name="moFilePath" select="GENERIC-CONTENT/FILE-ATTACH" />
    <xsl:variable name="thisID" select="java:getFileMO($helper,$moFilePath)" />
    <a>
    <xsl:attribute name="href">/AppConsole/secure/cmaViewer.do?spfAId=<xsl:value-of select="java:getFileMO($helper,$moFilePath)"/>
    </xsl:attribute>
    <xsl:value-of select="$moFilePath" />
    </a>

    I was also referencing the wrong xml so that's why $moFilePath was displaying nothing.

    My new output is as expected:
    <a href="/AppConsole/secure/cmaViewer.do?spfAId=1234567890STFL">/File Attachments/xxx.doc</a>
