Re: AW: simple conditional looping
> The orders tag will grow as and when new orders are added. well actually the tag will stay the same size (both the start and end tags) (don't use "tag" to mean element content, as it means something rather different) a recursive template is a good idea, but if you want to use the position() method you can do here as well. <xsl:template match="orders"> <xsl:apply-templates select="order"/> <xsl:for each select="(document('')//node()) [position() <= 50 - count(current()/order)]"> blank row </xsl:for-each> </xsl:template> will work so long as you have at least 50 element text or comment nodes in your stylesheet. (safer, although more expensive, to use (document('')// rather than just // as then you don't need to worry about small input files not having enough nodes) David ________________________________________________________________________ This e-mail has been scanned for all viruses by Star Internet.
