id in footnotes
Hello XSL experts,

I have a follow-on question to this one.  This solution requires users
to add a value for the xref attribute for each footnote.

Another solution to consoldiating footnotes would be to create a
crossref XML element with an footnoteref attribute.  Footnotes would be
numbered automatically by the footnote template. To create a dup
footnote, the user would set the value of the opid attribute of the
footnote to reference, then insert a crossref element at the desired
location of the dup footnote, and set its target id attribute to the
opid value of the footnote to cross-reference.

The XSL code for the crossref element:

<xsl:template match="crossref">
	<xsl:when test="@toFootnote='no'">
		<fo:basic-link color="blue"
			<xsl:value-of select="."/> (<xsl:value-of
		<fo:inline baseline-shift="super" font-size="8pt">
			<xsl:number count="//footnote[@opid=@targetid]"
format="1" level="any"/>

The resulting output has no value for the footnote reference.

Can someone see what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks for your help.

Ann Marie

Subject: consolidating footnotes in XSL

Hello XSL experts,

I am trying to NOT count duplicate footnotes. For example: I want
footnotes to number as follows:

foo1  foo2  foo2  foo3  foo4

1)foo text
2)foo 2 text
3)foo 4 text
4)foo text

I have XML with footnotes:

<footnote notetext="foo 3 text" xref="foo_fn1"/>
<footnote notetext="foo 3 text" xref="foo_fn2"/>
<footnote notetext="foo 3 text" xref="foo_fn2"/>
<footnote notetext="foo 3 text" xref="foo_fn3"/>
<footnote notetext="foo 3 text" xref="foo_fn4"/>

the XSL stylesheet:

<xsl:key match="footnote" name="FOOTNOTE" use="@xref"/>


<xsl:template match="footnote">
             <fo:inline font-size="0.83em" baseline-shift="super">
                  <xsl:number level="any"
provisional-label-separation="5pt" start-indent="0.0in"
                        <fo:list-item-label end-indent="label-end()">
xsl:use-attribute-sets="standardFont" font-size="8pt">
                                 <xsl:number level="any"
                       <fo:list-item-body start-indent="body-start()">
                       <fo:block xsl:use-attribute-sets="standardFont"
                           <xsl:value-of select="@notetext"/>


foo1  foo2  foo2  foo3  foo4

1)foo text
2)foo 2 text
2)foo 3 text
3)foo 4 text
4)foo text

What I want:

foo1  foo2  foo2  foo3  foo4

1)foo text
2)foo 2 text
3)foo 4 text
4)foo text

I want to NOT count footnote nodes whose refid matches the refid of the
previous footnote node.

How do I do tihs?
