see the recent thread (with the rather unhelpful tile "Re: [xsl] Stumped on

  The trick with doing cross references in XSLT is always generate the
  reference text _at the referenced node_ not on the referencing node.
  then you can easily get the same number in the reference and in the
  referenced heading. (Often by just calling a named template or special
  mode that just does the numbering.

so just have
<xsl:key name="l" match="legend" use="@id"/> then on your reference element do
<xsl:for-each select="key('l',@link)">

so that you generate the number on the <legend element even though it is
output at the point of the reference.
