the id attribute must be unique throughout the entire xml document. When you
are using generate-id() in xslt the id generated relates to the node in the
source tree, not the result tree. 

If you are attempting to use generate-id() in xsl:fo, it will not work,
remember that xsl:fo is a presentation language and does not have any
functional capabilities...if you type 'generate-id()' in the source, it is a
literal value.

the generated_id thing was just a way of hard-coding the generate-id() thing
i had been using so i could make the xsl xml independant. You could call
"generate_id" "tobythedog" if you wanted but it still dosn't work. The
problem seems to come from using the seem id (whether hard-coded or
generated using generate-id()  ) across 2 different page-sequences.....
does this make sense... i could on the other hand just be thick...
thanks anyway

Hi Michael,
You have to put as 'generate_id' and not 'generated_id'. I tried with it and
it works fine.
