Hi all,

I working on a stylesheet covering over 170 elements. Many elements have an
"id" attribute. Now I want to output an HTML target for every element with
and "id", I thought

<xsl:if test="@id">.....</xsl:if>

would be a bit messy in every template that needed it, so I thought I could

<xsl:template match="*[@id]">
        <a name="{@id}"/>
        <xsl:apply-templates select="." mode="has-id"/>
<xsl:template match="fig" mode="has-id">.....</xsl:template>
However that still means knowing which templates are going to need that mode
and on the face of it makes the templates themselves less reusable, it
doesn't look too efficient either, but I don't know about that. I was hoping
to do something a little more generic.
Any suggestions?
Kind regards
