To navigate in an XML graph using XSL

I'd like to transform an XML tree with an XSL stylesheet.

My XML tree might look like this :

        <book id="12345"/>
        <book id="12345">
            <name>Essential COM</name>
            <author>Don Box</author>

I would like to find informations about a book stored in the bookstore by
using its « id ». To do that, I would like to keep it somewhere and get it
back later on in order to build an XSL pattern.

Is this possible with XSL (I think it isn't). Does someone have a solution ?

Many thanks for your help.
