common xsl

I'm trying to write a common xsl templates for pdf and html.
My idea is to have a global variable called "Tag", depending upon the command like parameter the variable "Tag" will be assigned either to "<fo:block></fo:block>" or "<span></span>"
now inside my template(s) i can use
<xsl:value-of select=""$Tag" />Some Text<xsl:value-of select=""$Tag" />
But this is not working as the xsl:variable can't have "<, /, >" literals. I also tried using xsl:copy-of but no use.
kindly looking for your help on this or any new ideas...
