Am I understanding > this correctly and should this be how all XSLT v2 processors behave? Yes. It doesn't seem a very useful construct, but that's what it does. I can imagine a use for <xsl:for-each select="position()-1, position(), position()+1"> But wherever you can use a sequence of several numbers, you can also use a sequence containing a single number.
