given @id="1.2.3", how do I add or subtract 1 from the

I need to create "prev | next" links generated from
the current @id number for a file. ie - 'prev' link
would be equal to '1.2.2', and 'next' link would be
equal to '1.2.4'

You sure about that? How do you know if it's the last one in its section? What do you do then for the next? Or what if it's the first (for prev)?

If this section has an 'id' attribute (which is obviously not an ID attribute), perhaps the next and previous sections have 'id' attributes, too, and using their values would work better than just doing the calculation.
