 configuring a conditional
In my XSLT, I need to configure formatting for so-called "et al." handling in citations; e.g. (Smith et al. 1999). Sometimes this gets quite complicated, such that I've settled on this sort of config markup:

<rule when-more-than="2" and-less-than="6" and-position="subsequent" use-first="1"/>
<rule when-more-than="6" and-position="first" use-first="1"/>
<renderas font-style="italic">et al.</renderas>

Now my question is, how would I actually implement this in the XSLT? I can't rely on the and-less-than attribute to present, nor even the entire multi-name element.

Or is there a better way to make the markup suitable for transformation (it's my schema, so I can make it whatever I want!)?
