Re: Using COUNT to create unique anchors
I'm recursively going through my XML file to create a table of contents for a document. I want to be able to link each item on the TOC to the proper anchor later on the page.
The 'easy' solution would be for me to just store the unique ID stored in the database for each node within the XML itself, but I was wondering if there was a solution on the XSL side of things before I recreate the XML files.
So when you pass over your data to create your index, and then when you pass over it a second time to do the actual transform, as long as its all done as part of a single transform you can use generate-id()
