<xsl:variable name='ver' select="'1.0'"/>

<xsl:template match="ulink[@role='clhs']">

<xsl:variable name='target'>
<xsl:when test="$ver = '1.0'>
   <xsl:value-of select="$ver1URL">
  <xsl:value-of select="$ver2URL">

   <xsl:choose><xsl:when test=".=''">
     <a class="{@role}" href="{$target}{@url}.html"><xsl:text>[</xsl:text>
      <xsl:value-of select="@url"/>
     <a class="{@role}" href="{$target}{@url}.html">

Which assumes $ver1URL points to version 1 of CLHS
and $ver2URL points to version 2 of CLHS
