right - because you're calling value-of on this:

<ls:set-terminal-id><request:get-query-string /></ls:set-terminal-id>

which evaluates to the empty string. you need to apply-templates on the
request:get-query-string element so that it can be transformed by the
request logicsheet into this:


my suggestion is to use the get-nested-string template i wrote you last
time like this:

<xsl:template match="ls:set-terminal-id">
 <xsl:variable name="arg">
  <xsl:call-template name="get-nested-string">
   <xsl:with-param name="content" select="."/>
 <xsp:expr>_set_terminal_id(<xsl:copy-of select="$arg"/>)</xsp:expr>

that's a little overkill for what you're trying to do, but it should give
you the idea on how to generalize this to other situations.

ps - here's a possibly later revision of get-nested-string:

<xsl:template name="get-nested-string">
 <xsl:param name="content"/>
 <xsl:for-each select="$content/node()">
   <xsl:when test="name(.)">
    + <xsl:apply-templates select="."/>
    + "<xsl:value-of select="."/>"

also look in the sql.xsl logicsheet to see ricardo's get-nested-content
and get-nested-string methods
