Dear All,

Thanks for your answers, Michael I tried it out and it worked,
however, I have not so far managed to install Saxon to my Mac, so as a
temporal solution I am using a Firefox adds-on, called "Get XSLT
results" and it has two options for creating transformations, one is
the Saxon 9B, and the other one is called "Built-in XSLT", if I am
trying with the Saxon 9B option, it does not generate the id for this

    <xsl:template match="@ID">
            <xsl:attribute name="xml:id">w.<xsl:number


while the built-in option does, is it somehow related to Saxon 9B? or
alternatively it might be also the problem of this adds-on-
