This error ocurs when the value of the parameter set with setParameter contains:
- an xml/html tag with an attribute
- a single quote character in the tag's value

The parameter value will not be set. The function doesn't return FALSE either, making you think the value was successfully set. This only happens on my Windows setup, not in Linux.

If the tag doesn't contain an attribute, or the tag's value doesn't contain a single quote, the error does not occur.

Reproduce code:
$xml = new DOMDocument();

$xsl=new DOMDocument();
$xsl->loadXML('<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?><xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl=""><xsl:param name="parameter">ERROR</xsl:param><xsl:template match="/"><xsl:value-of select="$parameter" /></xsl:template></xsl:stylesheet>');

$list = <<<END
<p id="34">/CONCEPTS/God/Krishna's Incarnations/</p>

$xslt = new XSLTProcessor();
$xslt->setParameter('', 'parameter', $list);
print $xslt->transformToXML($xml);

Expected result:
<p id="34">parameter's value</p>

Actual result:

Please try using this CVS snapshot:
For Windows:

Can you also check the libxslt and libxml2 version? And if 
possible upgrade to the latest releases.

Chregu, This shouldn't work on any platform if I am correct. In PHP 5.1 a warning is explicity issued as this case is specifically tested in XSL extension:
Warning: XSLTProcessor::transformToXml(): Cannot create XPath expression (string contains both quote and double-quotes)

Right :) It generates a warning even in 5.0.x

-> Wont fix

I beg to differ. It is valid XML, and it doesn't generate a warning in 5.0.5. It's valid XML, so why should it generate a warning? And more importantly to PHP, why does it work in Linux, but not in Windows?

I have not tried the CVS on windows since I don't have a non-production machine I can test it on.

My Linux version of libxml2: 2.6.22
My Linux version of libxslt: 1.1.15

Windows version of libxml2: 2.6.11
Windows version of libxslt: 1.1.7

Will upgrade and try see if that solves the issue.

Apparently the windows build of PHP5 has libxml2 and libxslt compiled in, so it doesn't look like I can update those to a later version.
