Most XSLT processors have extension instructions that allow you to create multiple output files. You choose the filename and this can be a calculated value.

    <xsl:for-each select="b:Book/b:chapters/iese.Chapter:Chapter">
        <a href="chapter{1 +
          <xsl:value-of select="iese.Chapter:heading"/>

Then to create the individual files, use the same calculation in the target filename. The following is an example using an extension instruction in Saxon:

    <!--Body processing-->
    <xsl:for-each select="b:Book/b:chapters/iese.Chapter:Chapter">
      <saxon:output href="chapter{1 +
          <!--rest of chapter processing-->

I hope this helps.
