Perhaps you can construct the variable only with a XPath expression:

<xsl:variable name="rowstyle" select="concat('myItems', 2 - (position() mod 2))"/>


   <xsl:when test="position() mod 2 = 0">
       <xsl:variable name="rowstyle">myItems1</xsl:variable>
       <xsl:variable name="rowstyle">myItems2</xsl:variable>

Why is this not possible? Why is this variable not in scope outside of the xsl:choose? Is there no way for me to only do this calculation once, instead of doing it everytime I need to know what rowstyle to use?

Sometimes I wish XSL was more like a procedural language.
