xsl:script isn't part of XSLT 1.0, and I don't think that Xalan
supports XSLT 1.1 yet (unsurprisingly, given that it's still only a
Working Draft).

You could try doing the same kind of thing with lxslt:component and
lxslt:script.  Have a look at for a description of how
they work.

Have you looked at using generate-id() to generate unique IDs?

By the way, why are you doing:

>   <xsl:text disable-output-escaping='yes'>&lt;XID&gt;</xsl:text>

You don't usually need to use disable-output-escaping, so if you're
finding it necessary then you're probably missing something.  If you
post here with a description of what you're trying to do with the
above, and why you can't use:

  <XID />

or something similar instead, then we'll probably be able to help.
