I've done something like this.  If your going to perform dynamic changes to
the HTML on the client browser then you will want to look at JavaScript
(ECMAScript).  You would place such scripting into the HTML by putting it in
the xsl as an <xsl:comment>.  However it is NOT the <xsl:script> tag.  That
is for scripting which may be used during the processing of the XSL file.

My xsl file contains the following:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"><xsl:comment>

    ...JavaScript Here...


The JavaScript within those tags is passed into the final HTML file.

The tag <xsl:script> allows for scripting during xsl processing.  I use the
script below to alternate colors on the rows in a table.  (Just like an
accounting report)  This determines if it is an even or odd row and applies
a different color based on which.

      function even(e) {
        return childNumber(e) % 2;

      function whichColor(e) {
        if (even(e))
          return "#EEEEEE";
          return "#ffffff";

I call the above xsl:script with the following in my template:

name="BGCOLOR"><xsl:eval>whichColor(this)</xsl:eval></xsl:attribute> of content...

hope it helped,
