Hi Manfred,

This is a bit of an xproc gotcha.  When you move the <p:input> inside
the <p:add-attribute />, there's no longer a default readable port to
provide context for the xpath in p:with-option/@select.  When you were
using a p:identity, its output provided the needed context for

You need to change your p:with-option to read:

 <p:with-option name="attribute-value" select="$dir" >
      <p:empty />

A previous discussion can be found here:


Hope this helps,
