There's one error in there... I think '<' should be '&lt;':

No, only ">" needs to be escaped in attribute values.

True... except XMLSpy complains... :-)

I probably forgot the parenthesis, try"(//node())[position() &lt; (24 - ($detail-count mod 23))]">

Unfortunately, the FAQ
circumvents this question by using a variable, and I'm way
too lazy to fire up my trusty XSLT dev environment now...

Works like a charm! THANKS!!!

BTW, one other problem I've got is how to maintain the alternating row background-color... I'm using the following to specify bgcolor:
It works if I have an even number of DETAILLINEs w data. Of course, in this case position() is being used... If I use $detail-count instead bgcolor for empty rows stays the same...

No surprise. Try "($detail-count + position()) mod 2" or a variation.

ibid!!! :-)

I looked in the XSLT FAQ, and couldn't come up with an intelligent enough wording for searching. Any ideas on a good query?
