in addition to the comments in the reply I just sent,  you don't need to
use xsl:if, just put it in a predicate in the select


<xsl:for-each select="node[position() mod 4 = 1]">

it's usually preferable just to select the nodes you want rather than
select everything and then use an xsl:if as then within the for-each
position() goes in the sequence 1,2,3,4... numbering the items that are
actually being selected, which is often useful.
