You are calling this code

   <xsl:template name="document" match="//@id">
   <xsl:for-each select = "part">
     <xsl:document href = "{//@id}.html" method = "html">

Once for each document you want to generate. But because you use "//@id" to
form the filename, each document has the same name.

You should use @id, since the context node at the time you call the template
is a <part> element with an @id attribute. And get rid of the match
attribute, since you are calling the template by name, not using

Actually, you would be better off restructuring this so you do use
apply-templates rather than call-template, but that's irrelevant to the

You're going to have to correct a few other errors, most of your patterns
and path expressions, e.g.

   <xsl:template name="kind" match="/@kind">
      <xsl:for-each select="/*[@kind != '']">

suggest that you haven't really grasped the difference between absolute and
relative paths.
