Hi Jarno,
I have added the namspace with no errors, but the "idref" fields are still
empty. How could we indicate then for the xslt processor to refer elements
from the xml file being generated (types ids) and not the source one on
which it's operating.
thanks again.

x was just a namespace that I used to be able to embed the mapping elements
into the stylesheets. You need to declare e.g. xmlns:x="x".

This will not work, as a stylesheet cannot contain elements in
null-namespace. Add the namespace prefix and declare the namespace—makes no
difference what the URI is (as long as it isn't XSLT's namespace URI).
