css get position
Hi DPawson/ all,
	Thanks for the reply.
	If i calculate the expression "position() -1" as 
<xsl:for-each select="child::*">
	<xsl:variable name="test_var" select="position() -
	<xsl:apply-templates> select="."></xsl:apply-templates>
	I get the series i want(0, 1, 2..) but i'm unable to use the
variable as
	<xsl:template match="nv_pair">
		<xsl:number level="single" count="nv_pair" from="nv_pair"/>
		<xsl:copy-of select="$test_var"/>
because i get an error that the variable is "out-of-context". How can i
bring that variable within the scope(context).
	My sincerest thanks for reading through.

You can't nest templates.

All xslt counting is from 1..... n, not from 0
Adjust as necessary.
