     <xsl:with-param name="i">1</xsl:with-param>

It's inefficient to do that for xslt 1 and wrong and inefficient in xslt2.

the above makes a document node (rtf in xslt 1) with a text node child with string value

whereas what you want is

  <xsl:with-param name="i" select="1"/>

which makes a number (in xslt1) or integer (xslt 2) 1.

In xslt 1 it's just inefficient as the result tree fragment has to be
coerced back to a number, but in xslt 2 it gets the wrong values as the
< operator on document nodes will do a lexical comparison of the string
values of the nodes, so "10" will be less than "2" unless you have a non
standard default collation.

of course in xslt 2 it's easier to doi

xsl:for-each select=" 1 to 10"
