Re: Re: Increment/decrement a variable in XSL
As Jeny, I also thought that no one on this list would seriously propose implementing a mutable variable via an extension function. I think that in case one goes for this, they really do not need XSLT at all. Cheers, Dimitre Novatchev.

I think when you want to increment/decrement a variable, you may be justified to escape to a procedural language and to increment/decrement a variable simply. XSLT is not designed for this task and all other ways are more or less workarounds, IMHO. I see this is not a "pure XSLT" solution but I think it's appropriate for this non-XSLT task. __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Yahoo!
