    I am not sure I fully understand your question. Are you asking
    about the way to stuff an attribute with user data inside your
    XSLT stylesheet? Then there are several methods to achieve
    that: use either attribute-value templates:

    <rx:meta-field name="author" value="{/article/articleinfo/@author}"/>

    or a full <xsl:attribute> element:

    <rx:meta-field name="author">
      <xsl:attribute name="value">
         <xsl:apply-templates select="book/bookinfo/authorgroup/author[1]"/>

    Anyhow, this has nothing to do with XSL-FO in general and XEP
    in particular. You can find a more qualified advice in XSLT-oriented
    forums like XSL-list at MulberryTech:
