You need to quote the string inside the select:

<xsl:param name="season" select="'2000-01'"/> <!-- default season -->

If my name seems familiar, I worked with a Steve Cohen 12 years ago...

arith metic

I define a parameter in a stylesheet:

<xsl:param name="season" select="2000-01"/> <!-- default season -->

When I output the value of "$season" somewhere, I get "1999".  It is
performing the subtraction it thinks I want.  Is there some way to prevent
this from happening?  I want to have a single parameter, called "season" to
be interpreted as a string.
