XSLT 1.0 never uses exponential notation on output; XSLT 2.0 uses it by
default for floating point numbers outside the range 1e-6 to 1e+6. The
simplest way to avoid exponential notation is to use integer arithmetic
rather than floating point arithmetic. You're probably using floating point
because that's the default for untyped data when you don't have a schema.
You can convert to an integer instead by using, for example
xs:integer(object_id)+1. - or, of course, by doing schema-aware processing
with a schema that describes the type of object_id as xs:integer.
