RE:  Concatenation of Element Values
<xsl:template match="ADDRESS">
  <xsl:for-each select="ADDRESSFIELD/ID">
    <xsl:value-of select="../*[name()=concat('addressField', current())"/>
    <xsl:if test="position()!=last()">;</xsl:if>

(I'm assuming here that addressField2, etc, are siblings of ADDRESS, but you
didn't make this clear).

Incidentally, coding data into element names like this feels like bad XML
design. <addressField id="2"> would be much cleaner than <addressField2>.
