Re: numbering sorted list
> how could I look at the next item in the sorted list? with difficulty (but its not impossible) using standard XSLT but if your processor (eg xt, saxon, msxsl, xalan) offers a node-set() extension function to convert from a result tree frafment to a node-set (or in the case of msxsl, just implicit coercion) then you can first sort your list <xsl:variable name="x"> <xsl:for-each select="...."> <xsl:sort ... ... </xsl:variable> then process your sorted list <xsl:for-each select="xt:node-set($x)/*"> .... now position() gives the sorted order, and following-sibling::* gives the next node after sorting. </xsl:for-each> David XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
