You're trying to make XSLT work like a procedural language, which it isn't.
Far better to work with the language than against it. As previous posters
have said, you should use the xsl:for-each select attribute  to choose a set
of nodes you wish to process.

Is it possible to do the following :

<xsl:for-each select="EMPLOYEE_NO">
          <td WIDTH="62"><font face="Verdana" size="1">  <xsl:value-of
select="."/> </font></td>  
          <td WIDTH="89"><font face="Verdana" size="1"> <xsl:value-of
select="CONTRACT"/> </font></td>
          <td WIDTH="191"><font face="Verdana" size="1" align="CENTER"> 
<xsl:value-of select="MEMBER_NAME"/> </font></td>
        <xsl:variable name="temp">
         <xsl:value-of select="$counting+1"/>
        <xsl:if test="$temp = 10">
          <xsl:call-template name="BILLING_TEMP2">      
            <xsl:with-param name="counting" select="$temp"/>  
            <xsl:with-param name="counter2" select="$temp2"/> 
<xsl:template name="BILLING_TEMP2">
 <xsl:param name="counting"/>
 <xsl:param name="counter2"/>
 <xsl:if test="$counting &lt; $counter2">
  <xsl:call-template name="BILLING_TEMP">    
     <xsl:with-param name="counter" select="1"/>  
     <xsl:with-param name="counting" select="$counting + 1"/>  

to simulate a for loop ???
