True, but for simple known iterations (and short) the proposed way it's
not bad at all, at least for's way less verbose than a recursive
iteration ( the verbiage on the example was mine , the code it's
significantly shorter than a recursive solution ) 

It seems to me you are kind of XSL fundamentalist ? well is it not my
case, i'm truly open to EVERY posible solution..if you have a simpler
way to put up the *same* example stylesheet, with the same usefulness ..
well write it to the list..or illuminate me with your truly high view or
point me what is incorrect on my stylesheet ( apart  that you dont like
way it's written ) , i'll be glad to learn from you..but that it's not
the case..

Thanks god, you and i are not alone on this list..;)

Fortan, Fortran .....what is Fortran ? :)
