RE: how do you redefine a variable
Daniel, can I suggest you do some reading? I know there's a steep learning curve for XSLT, but there are plenty of tutorials, books, FAQs etc on which you will find answers to this common question. Sending four messages a day to a busy list is an inefficient way of organizing your learning. To find out whether position() is odd or even, test the value of position() mod 2.
