Re: xsl:number - What is Numbering Context?
I am trying to number figures consecutively through a document. I have a named template that handles generating the display text for figure captions. My intent is to re-use it for both the figure itself and cross references to figures:
BTW, the above could be shortened in your stylesheet to:
<xsl:template name="figure-caption-text"> <xsl:text/>Figure <xsl:number count="Figure" level="any"/>. <xsl:text/> <xsl:apply-templates/> </xsl:template>
However, when I call it for the cross ref, I always get the value "1":
Your xref stuff looks just fine ... are you sure you are changing the current node along the lines of:
<xsl:apply-templates select="id(@xrefptr)" mode="xref"/>
Clearly I'm missing something.
The code you've shown seems just fine, but you don't show how you get there.
I didn't see anything in the spec or the FAQ explained this behavior--everything implies that the numbering is with respect to the source tree, not, for example, the current node list as for position().
Yes, you are correct ... there is no "context" for <xsl:number/> other than the use of the from= attribute that limits context, which you are not using.
