Re: xsl:number value="id(@ref)" ?
Your problem is simply that xsl:number works differently from what you expect: in particular, the 'value' attribute doesn't work this way.
It may seem to be a bit of a kluge, but unfortunately to get the correct number you want using xsl:number, you have to change the context node to the node that you want to count. This can be readily done with a new template:
<xsl:template match="//see"> 'see' finds destination '<xsl:value-of select="id(@ref)"/>', whose position is: <xsl:apply-templates select="id(@ref)" mode="number"/>. </xsl:template>
<xsl:template match="*" mode="number"> <xsl:number/> </xsl:template>
If you're too lazy to make a new template, you could put the whole thing in a for-each.
Another alternative would be to skip the xsl:number altogether and use a simple count, as in:
'see' finds destination '<xsl:value-of select="id(@ref)"/>',
whose position is: <xsl:value-of select="count(id(@ref)/preceding-sibling::*)+1"/>.
Of course this will only work if you want the simplest of numbering schemes.

For generating links to numbered images in hypertext I'm using ID referencing. Accessing the children of a referenced node works fine with XT, but an xsl:number element using the reference returns always zero. Is something wrong with my code?
