Works for me (see files below).  Which version of XT are you using?

Input XML:

<?xml version='1.0'?>
 <submenu id='baz'>

Input XSL:

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl='' result-ns='' indent-result='yes'>
<xsl:template match='/'>

<xsl:template match='foo'>
  <xsl:value-of select="ancestor(submenu[@id])/@id" />
