I'm trying to get my xrefs to work, maybe I'm going about this the wrong
way, can you help? I've tried various methods found on the internet and
books with incorrect results. I'm pretty new at this so I'm sure it's
just something I'm doing wrong.
What I want is to have the actual figure number which is generated to
appear beside the word Fig.
As in:   "See Fig. 3 for details."
I also want to do this for tables and steps so I will add a test for the
xreftype later if I can get this to work.
The xml looks like :
<figure id="figure-2">
<title>This is a figure title 2</title>
<graphic boardno="picture.eps"></graphic>
PLEASE SEE <xref xrefid="figure-1" xidtype="figure"></xref>, <xref
xrefid="figure-2" xidtype="figure"></xref>, and <xref xrefid="figure-3"
xidtype="figure"></xref> for details.
The result of this ends up " PLEASE SEE Fig. 2, Fig 2, and Fig 2 for
What I have now numbers fig xrefs before the figures "0" after figure 1
it numbers the xrefs "1", and after figure 2 it numbers the xrefs "2". 
This is what I have right now in my FO.
<xsl:template match="xref">
    <fo:basic-link background-color="lightblue"
    <xsl:text>Fig. </xsl:text>
        <xsl:number count="figure" level="any" from="mainfunc" format="1

Here is snipet of format for figure template
<xsl:template match="figure">
  <fo:block text-align="center" font-style="italic"
<xsl:template match="graphic">
<fo:wrapper keep-together.within-page="always">
    <fo:external-graphic src="{@boardno}"/>
    <fo:block space-after="5mm" id="{generate-id(.)}">
        <xsl:number count="figure" level="any" from="mainfunc" format="1
        <xsl:value-of select="preceding-sibling::title"/>
        <xsl:if test="preceding-sibling::sheet">
            <xsl:text> Sheet
            <xsl:number count="sheet" level="any" from="figure"
format="1 "/>
            <xsl:text> of
            <xsl:value-of select="preceding-sibling::sheet/@total"/>
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
