Thank you!  I'd been pondering why it worked on some documents and not 
others.  The ones it didn't work on were the ones that I had automatically 
generated from other XML sources.

For any one else doing the same thing, here's what I did:

  <xsl:output method="xml"
      doctype-public="-//Norman Walsh//DTD DocBk XML V3.1.4//EN"

Adding the doctype-system and doctype-public to xsl:output got it to work.  
Your doctype-system values may vary.  (I'm using xalan-2.0.0/xerces-1.2.3 by 
the way.)

Camille-san.  Thank you for asking the question.  I also hesitated, sure that 
my transforms to DocBook were incorrect, despite looking at the xref outputs 
and correct id's.

Xalan didn't.  It also just complained that it couldn't find the ID.

Thank you both.
