xsltproc doesn't have them, libxml does. You could discover the line 
number from within a C program, but XSLT offers no means known to me for 
achieving this.

Answering my own question here, it seems that xsltproc has a way using 
one of its extensions. I looked in the libexslt source and found a
Saxon extension for a line-number() function. That does the job and I
don't mind using extensions in this case.

I suppose trying to do something in pure XSLT by counting newlines in
preceding nodes would fail for much the same reason as my original
problem: newlines between attributes in XML elements wouldn't be
