XSLT 1.0 or 2.0? Here's a 2.0 solution, untested:

<xsl:template match="*">
 <xsl:apply-templates select="ancestor-or-self::*/(.|@class|@id)"

<xsl:template match="*" mode="token">
  <xsl:value-of select="concat(name(), ' ')"/>

<xsl:template match="@class" mode="token">
  <xsl:value-of select="concat('.', ., ' ')"/>

<xsl:template match="@id" mode="token">
  <xsl:value-of select="concat('#', ., ' ')"/>
