I can only see 2 possible explanations:
1) Your real input XML contains elements with the same 'id' attributes.
2) You're not using any tool that displays error messages.

You tried this first:
<xsl:template match="rss/channel" >
<xsl:for-each select="item/page">
id = <xsl:value-of select="@id"/>

Which resulted (correclty) in 2 times "id = ..."

And then you changed to:
<xsl:template match="rss/channel" >
<xsl:for-each select="item/page[@id=456]"> id = <xsl:value-of select="@id"/>
</xsl:for-each> </xsl/template>

Which is not well-formed xml ('</xsl/template>') and caused the ouput file not
to be updated. Thus  creating the false impression that it returned 2 times
"id = ..." again.
