Hello all: I think I need to replace for-each in my XSLT's with recursion. I am interested in picking 'x' elements from 'y' (20 for each page from 500 records) for paging. for-each is working fine, but it is overkill, I should be able to terminate (return from as in procedural lang's) processing when I finish processing 20 records for a given page. I am trying to switch to recursion, but have a quick question. Is there a way to fetch an n'th element from given bunch of records. For example when I am processing records 20 thru records 40 out of 500 records, I would like directly fetch the record #20 from all the records. Is it possible..
not tested, but with position function inside your XPath expression you should get the records you want.
