I am currently developing a xsl stylesheet (xml --> html) and I have the
following problem. Consider the DTD:

<!ELEMENT content (section*)>
<!ELEMENT section (title, content)>
<!ELEMENT title (#PCDATA) >
<!ELEMENT content  (#PCDATA) >

Now I want to to generate an index with links to the sections:

        <a href="#section4">Title of Section 4 </a>

and in the contents part I want to have

        <a name="section4"/a>
        4. Title of Section 4

I know how to do the numbering, but I do not know how to generate the
links <a href="#section4"> and <a name="section4"/a>, especially how to
generate strings like section4 as the value of an attribute (i.e. of <a>).

Is it true, that the content of xsl:attribute can only be text? How can I
use xsl numbers to define attributes?

Any help is welcome!
