In this case, extend the logic David told you about to use templates instead of a for-each:

<xsl:template match="xref">
  <xsl:text>(See </xsl:text>
  <xsl:apply-templates select="key('ids',@xrefid)" mode="xref"/>

<xsl:template match="figure" mode="xref">
  <xsl:text>Figure </xsl:text>
  <xsl:number level="any"/>

<xsl:template match="step" mode="xref">
<xsl:text>Step </xsl:text>
<xsl:number level="multiple" from="chapter" format="1.1.1"/> <!-- or whatever it's going to be -->
</xsl:template> you use templates to sort out the different types of reference targets. (A good reference book will give you details on fancy ways to use xsl:number.)

Is there a way to test what element my xref is pointing to, or can I
test the xrefid with a wild card?

In my xref I test the attribute type and if it is figure I type the word
Fig. and number it.
If it is step I type the word step but here is where I need more.
Depending on the step element the numbering would be different.

<step1 id="step1-10">
<title>This is a sample title for a step 1</title>
<para>This is a step 2 reference to <xref xrefid="step2-11"

<step2 id="step2-11">
<title>This is a sample title for a step 1</title>
<para>This is a step 1. <xref xrefid="step1-10"

If it is a step1 then numbering would be format 1
If it is a step2 then numbering would be format 1.1
and so on

<xsl:template match="xref">
<xsl:when test="@xidtype='step'">
<fo:basic-link background-color="lightblue"
<xsl:for-each select="key('ids',@xrefid)">
<xsl:text>Step </xsl:text>
<xsl:number count="step1|step2" from="mainfunc|closeup" level="multiple"

Hope this makes sense! Any suggestions will be appreciated.
