This is a relative url. The base of relative urls is normally the stylesheet itself, which is probably not what you want here. What did you want to retrieve? If you expected to retrieve an element from the XML source document whose id is "id2", you can get it, for example, with //*[@id='id2'] (which would work even in the absence of a DTD that declares the id attribute to be of type ID), or perhaps by other more efficient expressions depending on what you know about the source document.
