It does, thanks.  So what do people usually do when they want to key
an element on multiple
attributes?  Do they just make a string with some kind of separator
breaking up the attributes?
Isn't there a chance of this failing if the character used for the
separator is used in one or more
of the attributes?

<xsl:key match="name"
              use="string-join((@oid, @parent-oid), '|')"/>
