Re:  Generating attributes from the position of an elem
I have the following xml file and wish to generate ID-s based on the
position to the<w>  elements with the following XSL file, however, the
end result of the ID attribute is always 1, I have no idea why.

The reason the value is always 1 is that the @ID attribute is always at position 1 in the list of nodes selected by

<xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()|comment()|processing-instruction()"/>

If you want the position in the source tree of the parent element of the @ID attribute, try<xsl:number/>.
