formatting a list
I know I saw this in the list-archives, but I can't find it now :(
I am trying to take a List and format it into a Grid. I found an example
on MSDN,
but, big shocker, was outside of the spec.

Basicly, I want to turn this:

<rooms>
    <room>
        <name>1</name>
    </room>
    <room>
        <name>2</name>
    </room>
    <room>
        <name>3</name>
    </room>
    <room>
        <name>4</name>
    </room>
    <room>
        <name>5</name>
    </room>
    <room>
        <name>6</name>
    </room>
</rooms>

into this
<tr>
    <td>1</td><td>2</td>
</tr>
<tr>
    <td>3</td><td>4</td>
</tr>
<tr>
    <td>5</td><td>6</td>
</tr>

only minor detail is that I want to do <xsl:apply-templates
select="name" /> instead of <xsl:value-of select="name" />. Not sure if
that effects the answer, but thought I would point it out now.

I know you have to do something with position() % 2, but I am having
problems expressing what I am trying to do in well formed XSL.

Thank you,

Noah
