xsl tables formatting mod position
Thanks everyone for their input.  I'm still having the same counting
problem after working with some of the suggestions.  I have worked
mainly with Abel's and Chuck Knell's suggestion, and I'm getting the
same results.  This is output that comes from an XML gateway into a
PHP/Sablotron script for formatting.

As per Abel's suggection, the input xml data I am using is included in
the post:

<insightResponse>
  <searchResponse>
    <collectionResultSet>
      <collectionName>Digital Media Collection</collectionName>
      <collectionID>1</collectionID>
      <institutionID>Parsons</institutionID>
      <vcID>NA</vcID>
      <object cid="1::Parsons::NA" objectID="4641" imageID="200761"
type="media" >
            <collectionName>Digital Media Collection</collectionName>
            <collectionID>1</collectionID>
           <institutionID>Parsons</institutionID>
           <vcID>NA</vcID>
           <collectionCopyrightStatement>These materials may be covered

                 <thumbnail URL="http://somelink"
mappingType="standard" mappingName="DublinCore" >
                       <label name="Creator" order="1" >Duchamp,
Marcel</label>
                       <label name="Title" order="2" >3
Stoppages</label>
                       <label name="Date Created" order="3"
>1913-1914</label>
                       <label name="Type" order="4"
>assemblage</label>
                </thumbnail>
      </object>
         <object cid="1::Parsons::NA" objectID="4342" imageID="200747"
type="media" >
        <collectionName>Digital Media Collection</collectionName>
        <collectionID>1</collectionID>
        <institutionID>Parsons</institutionID>
        <vcID>NA</vcID>
        <collectionCopyrightStatement>These materials may be covered by

          <thumbnail URL="http://somelink" mappingType="standard"
mappingName="DublinCore" >
          <label name="Creator" order="1" >Duchamp, Marcel</label>
          <label name="Title" order="2" >Bicycle Wheel</label>
          <label name="Date Created" order="3" >1951</label>
          <label name="Type" order="4" >assemblage</label>
        </thumbnail>

....
</collectionResultSet>
</searchResponse>
</insightResponse>

For the transformation I am thinking, There will be only 1 thumbnail
for each object.  Ideally, I would like to get:

<table>
<tr><td align="center"><img src="http://somelink">< br />labels<br
/></td><td>repeat sequence 4 more times</td></tr>
<tr>five more cells</tr></table>

I am using Chuck Knell's suggestion of a stylesheet, but I am getting
the same result.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
  <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
    xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
  <xsl:output method="html" encoding="iso-8859-1"/>

<xsl:template match="/">
    <xsl:apply-templates />
  </xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="insightResponse">
    <xsl:apply-templates />
  </xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="searchResponse">
    <xsl:apply-templates />
  </xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="collectionResultSet">
    <xsl:apply-templates />
  </xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="object">
    <xsl:apply-templates />
  </xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="thumbnail">
    <xsl:choose>
      <xsl:when test="position() mod 5 = 1">
        <tr>
          <td align="center">
            <img src="{@URL}" />
            <xsl:apply-templates />
          </td>
        </tr>
      </xsl:when>
      <xsl:otherwise>
        <td align="center">
          <img src="{@URL}" />
          <xsl:apply-templates />
        </td>
      </xsl:otherwise>
    <xsl:choose>
  </xsl:template>
  
<xsl:template match="label">
    <xsl:value-of select="." />
  </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>
