   It seems to me that $customerData is a Result Tree Fragment per
the definition in:
> 27       <xsl:value-of select =
> "$customerData/customer/Header-Info/@CreateTime"/>

  the definition states:

 "An operation is permitted on a result tree fragment only if that
  operation would be permitted on a string (the operation on the string
  may involve first converting the string to a number or boolean). In
  particular, it is not permitted to use the /, //, and [] operators on
  result tree fragments."

  Assuming customerData is really a Result Tree Fragment, then
apparently they are not compliant to the specification, but this
is not an excuse to not understand and comply to the specification.
Standards are there for garanteeing interoperability, if you use code
which violates it you loose the interop, that's normal. Report the bug to
the Saxon and Xalan lists, and fix your code for example by using the
exslt:node-set() extension:
