I assume you mean the IDs for the rule elements. These are "behind" 
the second link (the short green link with the SC number) that is 
provided for each SC. (I did not put the ruleset IDs in the link text 
because I originally used to two-column layout, but I can add those 
IDs again easily.)

I have updated the XSLT so that it puts the following introduction at 
the top of the page. This will become visible when a new version is generated.

The intro:
This page is an HTML view of the rulesets.xml 
[] file, which contains unique 
identifiers for the success criteria of several drafts of Web Content 
Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. For each WCAG draft, the success 
criteria are listed by guideline, then by number. Some WCAG drafts 
use the levels A, AA and AAA; in rulesets.xml, these levels 
correspond to levels 1, 2 and 3 respectively. For each success 
criterion, the list provides two links: a direct link to the text of 
the success criterion (long blue link), and a "link" to the rule in 
rulesets.xml (short green link). The latter link can be used in 
TCDL's rule element [].

Best regards,
