[xsl] Using XSL Values as hyperlink names

   I seem to be having trouble using XSL values as
hyperlink names.  Pretty much what I would like to do
is use a <xsl:value-of.... or a $variable as the name
of the hyperlink.  For example, something like the
<a href=#<xsl:value-of...." or <a href="#$variable". 
Then I want to use the hyperlink to go to a certain
point in the XSL output that is referenced with 
<a name... in the code.  I need to do this dynamically
with a for-each loop having a different number of
interations for each XML file that it is ran against. 
Because of this, I can't simply assign a random name
to the hyperlink, because then each iteration will
generate the same hyperlink name.  I need some way to
generate a unique hyperlink name per iteration.  I
assume it would be easier to use the hyperlink's
actual value as the name, and that's what I am trying
to do.  I just need the syntax for using such XSL
values in this situation in both the <a href> part and
the <a name> part.  I understand that this is an XSL
forum, and although part of my question is HTML, my
problem is regarding XSL's values and how they can be
used, so hopefully this won't be a problem.  

Thanks for your help.
