I apologize for that rather stupid heading. People tend to do stupid things
when they are desperate and against the wall.
Anyway thanks for replying.

I know the approach is a little hokey, but my idea was to create a list of
Customers that I am searching from an LDAP via a Java function. All I want
to do is to print that list in a HTML page as links. I eventually want to
set a cookie when someone clicks on that link. So I just want to loop by
recursively calling that function untill I get no more. I really appreciate
if there is another way to do this loop.

XSLT is a declarative language not a sequential one, so you can't "remember"
values and use them "later", because those are sequential concepts. You need
to change your thinking.

I think it would be a good idea to describe the transformation you want to
perform, because your code looks as if you've got the design approach all
wrong, so it would be a mistake to tackle the problems at the coding level.

(And it might be a good idea to abandon the "URGENT" from the heading.
Trying to run before you have learnt to walk is not a good way of reaching
your destination quickly.)
