The secret for numbering any kind of cross reference in xslt is to number the thing being referenced, not the reference. Here you want to number the footnotes, and you want the cross reference to use the numbr of teh references footnote, so

if your footnotes are of the form

<ftn id="zzz">blah blah...</ftn>

and your xref is of the form

<xref type="fn" ref="zzz"/>

Then you want something like this

<xsl:key name="fn" match="ftn" use="@id"/>

<a href="footnote-xyz"><sup>
<xsl:for-each select="key('fn',@ref)">
<xsl:number level="any"/>

so in your xref code you jump to the referenced footnote and then use the same labelling code as you use when labelling the footnote.
