besides using &lt; you could write your entire javascript inside a CDATA section:

for (i=0; i<6; i++)

if you need to insert information from your source xml file just close the cdata section and open it again afterwards:

for (i=0; i<6; i++)
<xsl:value-of select="someTag"/>
more script...

I have an XSL file that I use to display my XML data. The XSL file contains
some JavaScript. I have not been having troubles using JavaScript within the
XML file until I added a for loop. The for loop loops like: for (i=0; i<6;
i++)... When I try to load my pages, I get an error at the 6. I believe the
error is that XSL is trying to create a tag from the lessthan sign. How can
I get XSL to understand that this is code and not some tagging? I am using
the namespace "";. I have defined my
script block with LANGUAGE="JavaScript" inside the HEAD block which is
inside the <xsl:template match="/"> block.

I have gotten it to work when I replace the < sign with &lt; which is pretty
