RE: (How) can I randomly access the result of a <xsl

xsl random select result
First, you put the result in a variable:

<xsl:variable name="x">
  <xsl:for-each select=...

In XSLT 1.0, to address into this variable, you need the xx:node-set()
extension (in your case, xalan:nodeset()).

In 2.0, you can use it directly.

<xsl:variable name="evens" as="xs:integer*">
  <xsl:for-each select="1 to 100">
    <xsl:sequence select=". * 2"/>

<xsl:value-of select="$evens[5]"/>

Though for this example it's easier to use an XPath "for" expression.
