As others have pointed out, you can use a stylesheet
parameter to get the ids into the filenames.

Creating the tree directory structure is harder.
I don't know about DSSSL, but XSL has no built-in
function to create directories.  I've heard of
XSL extension functions to do that, but don't
know one personally.  8^)
