Re: Incrementing a counter
> From what I understand about variables in XSLTs, you can't change the > value. So if that's true, how can I increment a counter? variables work in xslt the way they do in mathematics and in other declarative programming languages. beginners coming from oter programming languages often try to overuse variables, the trick usually is to express the desired result as a function of the input and just code it naturally as xsl. For example here you want to output the current number so you don't want all that x=x+1 weirdness, you just want to output the current number which (depending on your input) might be just <xsl:number/> or perhaps <xsl:value-of select="position()"/> It sounds like your problem is a "grouping problem" for which in xslt see jeni's site (google) or use xslt2 (eg saxon8) which makes solving such problems much easier as it has a specific grouping construct (xsl:for-each-group) david ________________________________________________________________________ The Numerical Algorithms Group Ltd is a company registered in England and Wales with company number 1249803.
