Dear list,

	Thank you all for your replies regarding my attribute question.

	I have an other problem, this is an expression which gives value 
to an attribute inline, inside the element definition:

"{concat('id',string(number($assoc_pos)*number('1000') + number('500000') 
+ number(position())))}"

	This is inside an <xsl:for-each> loop and we may assume that 
all the for-each loop will loop exactly two times.

	The $assoc_pos variable will have different values, it will start 
from 5 and it will have an incremented value whenever the processor enters 
this template.

So, the output attribute should be stg. like:
id5005001, id5005002
id5006001, id5006002
id5009001, id5009002

and so on. And this is how it work, but, it's very strange, when the 
variable $assoc_pos reaches the value 10, the generated attributes will be

id51, id51

I have no idea how could this happen. Is this a bug ? Or I have done stg 

I'm using XmlSPY 5.2

Thank you,
