RE: FW: Dealing with mixed content
My question was more to do with the pattern Joris used, i.e. generate-id((.. | preceding-sibling::hr)[last()]). I understand the generate-id() function but was not entirely sure what the pattern itself was doing.

If you want to index all employees by their works number, you do <xsl:key name="k" match="employee" use="works-number"/> and then to find an employee with works number 517541 you do key('k', '517541') The use attribute can be any XPath expression, so if you want to index employees on the number of events they have in their promotion history, you can do <xsl:key name="k" match="employee" use="count(promotion-history/event)"/> and then key('k', 3) will find all employees with three such events.
