Hi chris,

 you should try it with Evaluate e. g.

Plot[Evaluate at Table[xyinterp[m][x], {m, 1, 10, 3}], {x, -5, 5}]

By the way: Without Evaluate you get no result not because of  "the value of x
needs to be defined pior to the execution of the Table command".
Plot has Attribute HoldAll an takes its arguments unevaluated. With Evaluate
you  suppress this Attribute and Plot gets the argument in an evaluated form.
