Don't try to debug (any) stylesheet by viewing what happens when the
result pf teh stylesheet is rendered in the browser, that is always a
painful way of working, as the browser is designed to give virtually no
diagnostic error messages.

The XSLt engine has almost no connection with teh rendering engine (even
if both are running in the browser) javascript is just text to XSLT.

XSLT is generating soME HTML with embedded javascript, you need to run
the XSLt outside the browser, and look at that generated HTML. If you
generated what you expected, but it doesn't work then your problem isn't
an XSLt one, but a javascript/html problem, and you need to find out
what javascript you do need. If the generated file is not what you
expect than you can rephrase your problem in terns that XSLt can
address, that is something like:
I wanted to generate <img src="wibble"> and the stylesheet generated
<img src=""> 

By teh way your xslt is a lot more verbose than needed, for example

                <xsl:attribute name="src">BG008.jpg</xsl:attribute>
                <xsl:attribute name="alt">
                    <xsl:value-of select="./@alt"/>
                <xsl:attribute name="id">
                    <xsl:value-of select="./@id"/>
                <xsl:attribute name="width">150</xsl:attribute>
                <xsl:attribute name="height">113</xsl:attribute>
                <xsl:attribute name="border">0</xsl:attribute>
                <xsl:attribute name="name">Image 1</xsl:attribute>

could be

 <img src="BG008.jpg" alt="{@alt}" id="{@id}" width="150" height="113"
 border="0" name="Image 1"/>
