Re: variable incrementing in XSLT -- XSLT spec
> of course the choice of word 'variable' is unfortunate cuz it may indicate > to the uninitiated 'something that could possibly vary' . Its been used that way for hundreds of years, why should it cause confusion now? A value variable may be different in different instances, if you go <xsl:variable name="x" select="foo"/> in a template then the variable x will have a potentially different value each time. In this sense it's not constant. But when in mathematics or english you start off by saying let p be a prime, ..... it would be strange to say the least if half way through the paragraph you said, oh from this point on let's make p 4.
