You can not change the value of a variable once it is bound.

don't do this:

>   <xsl:variable name="counter" select="1 + $counter"/>
>     <xsl:value-of select="$counter"/>

do this:

 <xsl:value-of select="position()"/>

which xslt engine are you using? You should have no output at all, you
are supposed to get an error message at the point you attempt to
redefine your variable.
