Sounds as if you're doing the right thing: 

apply-templates select="//figure[@id="current()/@figures]"

(or using keys would be faster)

This will process the referenced figure, as a sort of subroutine, and
then return to continue where the processing left off, dealing with the

But it seems you've coded it wrong. The usual plea therefore - we can't
debug your code without seeing it.
