What's wrong with:

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"

<xsl:template match="RECORD">
  <xsl:number level="any"/>
  <xsl:text> </xsl:text>
  <xsl:value-of select="INFO1"/>


No counting or recursion required: this is letting XSL's processing model do all the work.

Was it the xsl:number instruction you forgot about? I'm assuming the processing model is not mysterious to you at this point. (If it is, let us know.)

Good luck,

I need to count and number "records" in an XML file.
It would seem that recursion is the answer, but I am
concerned about performance.

When using recursion I have noticed a 10:1 performance
decrease over not using recursion.  I assume that user
error is responsible.

If I do not use a recursive function then my template
will process in roughly 1 second.  I do not get the
desired results because I need individual numbered
lines.  When I use the recursive function then
performance goes to roughly 10 seconds.

Any and all help would be appreciated.  Thanks in
advance for your time.

Example of XML file format:


The desired result would be:
1 xyz
2 abc
