Thanks a lot for your suggestion.

<xsl:template name="this">

<xsl:for-each select="ancestor-or-self::*">
<xsl:text>/</xsl:text><xsl:value-of select="name()"/>[<xsl:number/>]<xsl:text/>


  <xsl:template match="paragraph">
    <xsl:variable name="location">
      <xsl:call-template name="this"/>
       <xsl:when test="@mode='note'">
         <div class="note">
             <xsl:attribute name="href">
               <xsl:value-of select="$location"/>
         <p><xsl:apply-templates /></p>

works as desired.

But not with Xalan :-(. Is there anybody who knows the reason for this?

Saxon (6.3) output:

<div class="note">
  <a href="/glossary[1]/glossentry[1]/glossdef[1]/paragraph[2]">paragraph</a>

Xalan (2.1.0) output

<div class="note">
  <a href="/glossary[]/glossentry[]/glossdef[]/paragraph[]">paragraph</a>
