Firstly, you can't use the <xsl:variable> element as a direct child of
<xsl:for-each>: it can only be used as a child of <xsl:stylesheet> or
<xsl:template>.

This is a false statement ... I often do this and it is very useful to have a locally scoped variable within the for-each construct. Since the scope of a variable is its following siblings and their descendants, the variable can be assigned a new value when the next node in the current node list is acted upon.
