You're not going to do it this way. What you're asking is a grouping problem; XSLT does not handle it by iterating in the fashion you describe. (Nor does it "add in a new tag" -- it just don't work that way.)

Check out the XSL FAQ ( under grouping; or I'll bet Jenni has this one nailed on her site (

I would like to count the number of
iterations in a for-each loop (used to
create a table) and add in a new tag
(to create a new table) every 15th iteration.

How do I go about counting and checking
for the 15th iteration in XSL?

Thanks for any help you can provide.
