If you want to treat the first / last text nodes of article-title, no
matter how deep they are nested in other elements:

<xsl:template match="article-title//text()[

for $t in ancestor::article-title//text()
return generate-id($t)

you don't need to compare id strings in xpath2 as you can use is

 <xsl:template match="article-title//text()[
 . is(ancestor::article-title//text())[last()]

which is a long way of writing

<xsl:template match="article-title/descendant::text()[last()]"/>

except you can't use descendant axis in a pattern: grrr

except the plan is you can in xslt 2.1: yay!

except there are too many changes to call this 2.1, should be 1.0, 5th edition: booo
