Can someone please tell me why I cannot get the following to work. I am trying to select the id number for specific element.

<!-- XML -->

    <BBB id = "11" >B1 </BBB>
    <BBB id = "22" >B2 </BBB>
    <BBB id = "33" >B3 </BBB>

<!-- XSL -->

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl = "http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"; version = "1.0" >

<xsl:template match = "/" > <xsl:value-of select = "id('33')" /> </xsl:template> </xsl:stylesheet>

I get an error that reads:

"This name may not begin with the '3' character:"

I want to talk to/read all elements that have an id of 33. In this case, of course there is only one.
