I suspect you have a basic misunderstanding about parameters. They only
parameterize either template rules or the entire stylesheet ... they cannot
parameterize a portion of the stylesheet.
If you are just trying to set $frame and $rule, then use <xsl:variable>
which is allowed pretty well anywhere in a template rule.

These are improperly named XSLT instructions ... they should be <xsl:param>.

I feel you have been misinformed.

Check again what Bob has to say ... it looks fine to me.
I hope this helps.
