RE: Selectively displaying numbers
Hi Mick, It looks like to me that the mod function could be a solution to your problem. Something like this: <xsl:choose> <xsl:when test="@lineID mod 5 = 0"> <td> <xsl:value-of select="@lineID"/> </td> </xsl:when> <xsl:otherwise> <td></td> </xsl:otherwise> <xsl:choose> Give that a shot and let me know if it works out for you.

In an xml file I have marked up lines, using an attribute for line numbers, e.g.: <line lineID="1">this is the first line</line> <line lineID="2">this is the second line</line> <line lineID="3">and so on, and so forth</line> I'm using the following xsl to display the lines and their line numbers: <td><xsl:value-of select="@lineID"/></td> <td><xsl:value-of select="."/></td> With this, each line is numbered. What I would like is to number ever 5th line, so I only get line numbers for 5, 10, 15, 20 etc. I've worked out what the xsl should be, but my knowledge of xsl-maths is failing me. In simple prose, I would like the following. If the result of "@lineID divided by 5" is a round number (i.e. no decimals, fractions) then display the line number; else do not display. In other words: If (@lineID/5)=round number -> <td><xsl:value-of select="@lineID"/> Else -> <td></td> Can anyone help me and tell me what the xsl should be? Much appreciated.
