You may add "id" attributes to your div's (e.g., via generate-id)
during the first transformation and then use them in subsequent

Another approach concerns implementing a custom extension function
wich does the work (this can be less costly than a purely XSLT solution).

Probably, there are other, more effective, solutions, I do not know right
