These numbering schemes fail together to do a simple trivial thing.For example --- my problem(though it's not that simple)! Which could have been done straight away if there were some provision of incrementing a variable in XSLT. Beleive it or not there is a strong need of one IMHO. there was no need of deprecating xsl:assign or fixing a bug where <xsl:variable name="a" select="$a+1" /> worked some time ago. If there were no need then nobody would have bothred to write ft:assign to do this thing. Ok there are some problems introducing it. But an working extension/provision/solution is highly recommended. This 'll not make XSL procedural but solve problems of both communities(saving a lot of time and energy in reinventing the wheel),As some solutions(ft:assign already exists (which are (may be) not straightforward. Currently I'm trying to integrate Americo Solution but actual problem has not 3 but 10 columns each with a bit complex content.I think I have to integrate all these contents in <item vars...
