First -- please understand that what you are asking is the *classic* frequently-asked-question.

If you point a browser at (make yourself a browser bookmark now :-) and jump from there to the "XSLT Questions and Answers" page, you will see a list of topics. Poke around there for a few minutes. It turns out if you jump to the page on "Tables", you will find a subheading "4. Alternate colors on TABLE rows" -- which is what you need.

Or, if you open the archives to the list (at -- another page to bookmark!) and search for something like "alternating rows", you'll get a bunch of hits.

Of course, once you dig farther you'll be likely to find David C. telling someone that the question is a FAQ (just as I'm telling you :-) and pointing them to the XSL Recommendation, where an answer is given (but I suppose you couldn't have guessed that). (See for Dave's advice.)

Anyhow -- I hope that helps.
