    Thanks so much (a bit late, but I was out of town--sorry). I tried
    your suggestion but with no luck. If you don't mind, I have two
    questions. One, about the syntax--

    I'm confused here. I thought it would be illegal to use a set of
    single quotes inside a set of single quotes. ?? But I tried this, and
    it doesn't seem to matter whether I do or don't use quotes around
    'my_symbol'. Either way, my link just takes me to page 1.

    My .fo code looks like this:
    <!--template for the main document-->
    <xsl:template match="persName">
      <fo:inline id="#mention-{generate-id(.)}" color="#CC6666">

    <!--template for the index document-->
    <xsl:for-each select="//persName[count(.|key('persons-by-who',
      <xsl:variable name="peop" select="@who"/>
        <fo:block xsl:use-attribute-sets="font" space-before="24pt"
        <xsl:if test="(@who=$identified)">
          <fo:block font-weight="bold" id="#person.{generate-id(.)}">
    select="translate($indexdoc//item[@id=$peop]//surname, $lower,

    If that question is off-topic for this list, I'll ask elsewhere, and
    please pardon me.

    But for XEP specifically, would you mind telling me how you run the
    transformation? I've been doing the first transformation of my source
    and stylesheet with Saxon, which creates 2 .fo files, and then using
    XEP to transform the two resulting .fo files into .pdf--mainly because
    I can't figure out what commands to use to do it all in XEP.

    I would appreciate any help--if you have time!
