alternating tags in a list?
I think that's beyond the scope of XSL per se. To handle odd/even, you either need a richer styling language, or you need some way to extend XSL. Some early versions of XSL did have some ability to invoke a procedural language such as ECMAscript, which could provide the "state" information for this kind of toggling... It occurs to me that what you probably _really_ want is not 2 columns, but N columns, where N is chosen to suit the width of the presentation medium and where the items are flowed from line to line to fill out that width. Might be hard to express that in HTML... Do the proposed XSL formatting objects allow one to express this kind of "flowed grid of size-balanced items"? ______________________________________ Joe Kesselman / IBM Research Unless stated otherwise, all opinions are solely those of the author.
