So, the key runs independent of the number element, and just picks up all
occurrences of  "Equation", in order, and returns the key value for the
matched IdRef value?

I added items shown below. The result is a blank.

<xsl:key name="kEqn" match="Equation" use="Target" />

<xsl:template match="etd:xRef">
	<xsl:apply-templates select="key('kEqn', etd:RefElemID)"/>

Equation and Target are both elements declared within the etd namespace. I
tried the template with and without etd: prefixes.

You have tried to select a child element called "number" and there isn't
one. If there were one, you would be selecting it only if its @Target
attribute were equal to the string "etd:RefElemId". But Target is not an
attribute, it is an element, and the string is not a string, it is an
element name - so you seem pretty confused.

I think you want

<xsl:key name="k" match="Equation" use="Target"/>


<xsl:apply-template select="key('k', etd:RefElemId)"/>

though I'm guessing wildly about the namespace.
