Re:  XSLT for XSL-FO internal-destination

Thanks for clarifying that issue with the invalid URI. Also, I am using xslt
1, but it looks like I could use the translate function.

I'm not quite clear on the mechanics of getting the new id for the href into
an FO block at the beginning of each file. Here is a simplified anchor
template. Is this correct method for generating the href id?

<xsl:template match="a|A">
      <fo:basic-link color="blue">
              <xsl:attribute name="internal-destination">
                 <xsl:value-of select="translate(@href,':/','')" />
              <xsl:apply-templates />

Also, I search through a table of contents file to open each source file; so,
I thought I could try inserting the href id in <fo:block> in the page flow,
but this doesn't work:

    <!-- Page sequence for body pages -->
	<fo:page-sequence master-reference="only" format="1">
    	     <fo:static-content flow-name="footer">
                <fo:block text-align="center">
              <fo:flow flow-name="xsl-region-body">

                   <fo:block id="{@href}">

        			<xsl:for-each select="//TocEntry">
        				<xsl:for-each select="document(@Link)//body">

Can you tell me where I'm going off track?
