I tried this: <xsl:template match="*" name="fullNameWorker" mode="fullName"> <xsl:if test="generate-id(.)!=generate-id(/)">
You have a template for element nodes (match="*") so why do you test generate-id(.) != generate-id(/) ? An element (.) is never a root node (/).
But your template with match="*" is never processed for the root node which is match="/". If anything makes sense then
generate-id(.) != generate-id(/*)
as that compares the matched element to the root element (which is different from the root node).
