You're reading a very old version of the spec. XSLT 1.0 has no updateable
variables of any kind.

You have a grouping problem: see the FAQ under sorting and grouping. The way
to print something every fifty <item> elements is:

<xsl:template match="item[position() mod 50 = 1]">
Here's the next 50:
<xsl:for-each select=". | following-sibling::item[position() &lt; 50]">
  <item><xsl:value-of select="."/></item>
