I have an issue w. generating a unique id from a called template in an included XSL file.  I use the template to create
buttons for the bottom of a form.  Their content is not based on the XML, but values such as Save, Delete, etc.  The DHTML
code that's I'm using requires each button the have a unique name.  I tried 

<xsl:variable name="id" select="generate-id(*)"/>

but that gave me the same id for every call to the template.  I tried Jeni's generate-id() code from dpawson's FAQ, but
that assumes that I'm within the context of XML at the time, and I'm not.  I'm trying to avoid having to pass a unique ID
into the template, and have the template do it for itself.  Where should I go from here?
