Thanks, Marla.

Hi Marla

In XSLT if you need to loop on a counter you have to use a recursive function (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recursive_function).

In this case you may try to use the position() function as index

<xsl:for-each select="table/line">
<xsl:copy-of select="$strLength"/>
<input type="hidden" name="{ concat(line, position()) }" value="10"/>
<input type="text" name="{ concat(tbRemark, position()) }" size="50" />

Hope this helps
